Favorite Quotes: High Road to Presidency

"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."

-John McCain

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.

  2. Would he have been able to deal with the financial crisis GW left us? Oh gosh I don't even want to think of the antics Palin would've played. Shudder.

  4. I did respect and admire John McCain at one time. But he didn’t take the high road on his campaign as he said he would. And he gave us Sarah Palin. Over the years he undid a lot of his own bridge building and good works. But still miles above trump as a human being

  5. McCain had beliefs that many American (and even I) didn't agree with, but he was truly a man of integrity. It was really a sad day to see him pass away. The GOP is a big joke, now more than ever!
