SheriSapp, appreciate that. I'm still waiting for a Democrat to answer the question in the other direction! I am a Democrat (usually), and to answer my own question, there is much I admire in McCain; any man who stays in a POW camp voluntarily for 5 years because he refuses to leave before other prisoners who were there before him automatically has my respect, whatever his views. I sometimes like Orrin Hatch, having grown up in a neighboring state. I don't agree with Palin much, but I cannot deny (and I think anyone in their right mind can't deny) that she is really attractive!.
