Senator McCain? A few questions please!

After his victory in Wisconsin, John McCain called out Senator Barak Obama, the likely Democratic presidential nominee. In a not so veiled smack at the Illinois Senator, McCain asked if America wants to "risk the confused leadership of an inexperienced candidate who once suggested invading our ally, Pakistan, and sitting down without pre-conditions or clear purpose with enemies who support terrorists and are intent on destabilizing the world by acquiring nuclear weapons?"

Fair question. One I'm sure Obama will be happy to answer in his upcoming debates with the republiCONS default nominee.

Yet, I'm certain Obama, as well as the rest of the American public will also have a few tough questions for McCain.

How about these for starters?

Does America want a President who uses enthic slurs? Or what does it tell us about the candidate's judgment who sees no problem with a hundred year war/occupation? Are voters comfortable with someone running the country who appears to have sold his soul in an attempt to win over the extreme right? Or does a man who once called Jerry Fallwell and his ilk the "agents of intolerance" only later to turn around and give a commencement address at the agent's University have the moral character to lead the nation?

We look forward to learning the answers.
