Regular readers are likely to know that John McCain is not my preferred Presidential candidate but, still, I am annoyed at the “he’s too old to be president” line of attack.
The goal is a society that does not judge people by their skin color, their religion (or lack thereof), their reproductive organs or their chronologic age. The goal is a society that seeks, to the greatest degree possible, to judge people according to their individual merits and weaknesses.
One way or another, America is going to have a “first” as the next president.
I would like a campaign that is less concerned about “firsts” and more concerned about the issues that face all Americans.
I’m just sayin’…
