David Jamaal at DoneDems.com, a site for Clinton supporters who are not supporting Obama, makes an excellent point about candidate authenticity. Obama’s monicker of change has weakened as he has shown the willingness to flip his positions on issues such as public financing, gun control, and free trade for political expediency. Conversely, Senator McCain has a history of putting his country and his word before politics, therefor making him the quintessential trust candidate.
This election will turn on trust.
Is there a third party candidate you trust to win and to serve competently?
Do you trust Sen. McCain, who puts country before Party, who has shown bravery in risking bold bipartisan positions , and who is quickly making energy independence central to his campaign while Mr. Obama offers nothing but ‘no’ to every new idea?"
