"I will not take the low road to the highest office in this land. I want the presidency in the best way, not the worst way."
In 2008 I did not want John McCain to be President of the United States, and I proudly voted for the then-Senator Barack Obama. Politics can blind everyone and anyone, but on reflection, John McCain led a noble campaign of honor and integrity. I suppose Sarah Palin was there to provide that redneck Jerry Springer-esque garbage into U.S. politics. Donald Trump didn't take this route to be president, but since he let Russia help him, he won it in the worst way. To put things in perspective, John McCain lost in a electoral landslide at 45.7% of the popular vote, Trump won an "impressive" electoral victory despite having 46.1% of the popular vote.
