The Main Reason I Oppose McCain
With McCain's health a serious issue, there's a reasonably good chance that Sarah Palin could end up being president. Do we really want to risk the embarrassment of having a "First Dude" represent The United States on the world stage? Do we want to flip on our TVs and hear a BBC reporter say, "Prime Minister Gordon Brown received President Sarah Palin and the First Dude at Number 10 this morning..."? The title "First Dude" is not as charming or folksy as the hockey mom would like us to think.
By the way, if Hilary had won the nomination, and I suspected there might be the slightest chance she'd refer to Bill as her "First Dude", I would probably have a McCain bumper sticker on my car right now. But I doubt that would happen.
First Dude? Seriously?
