if you are a Democrat, what Republican politician do you admire (you can't say "no one")?
I am a staunch republican, so this is a difficult question. I can't say I "admire" Bill Clinton, but the job he did (not taking into account his personal shenanigans) as president was okay. As for the current group of dems, I guess Juan Williams (from Fox and NPR) is somewhat reasonable though I usually disagree with him.
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!.

I am not justifying Herman Cain's behavior, but the media acts like he is the first womanizing politician. They willingly forget that Clinton had many scandals during his run for office and while he was in office. What...
