How a politician campaigns tells you a lot about how he or she would govern. . . . The Obama campaign is wrong to suggest that a McCain-Palin administration would just be a continuation of Bush-Cheney. If the way John McCain and Sarah Palin are campaigning is any indication, it would be much, much worse.

John McCain would lose his country to win an election.
