Picture of the Day - 4

  • Great image. I have no idea what's going through McCain's mind, but he looks like a man viewing his own wake.

    I wonder, maybe, if he's actually relieved that the immense problems of the world weigh not on his head, but Obama's. Given what I saw of McCain during the campaign I think both he and we dodged a bullet.

    Good luck President Barack Hussein Obama. President of the United State of America. And good luck to us all.

  • I definitely agree that McCain was not the man for the moment, but I'm not so sure he thinks so.

  • "... but I'm not so sure he thinks so."

    Yeah, I don't know. As I've said before, I think McCain is all about the fight, not actually doing the work of governing. Then again, maybe he sees the presidency as just a command chair from which to order others to find solution and fix problems, so...
