Is John McCain ready to be president of the United States? Actually, I’m beginning to think he’s well past ready. He missed his window of opportunity in 2000 and is now careening into the sunset, becoming increasingly erratic and unpredictable. His inexplicable behavior and contradictory remarks over the last 10 days or so, coming on the heels of a vice presidential choice I find stunningly incompetent, has really kicked the legs out from under my little remaining confidence that he could be a tolerable president if he happened to win.
Good intentions are not enough. Being a war hero is not enough. Being a maverick is not enough. Is this really a man we want in the White House? Do you really think he should, or even could, answer a critical 3 am phone call?
