The Middle Can Be Good
I have been doing a lot of thinking about the election these past few days as Michelle Obama took the microphone at Democratic convention and tried to make everyone believe she wasn't as cold and bitchy as she comes off. I decided that this country could do a lot worse than McCain. Not just because Obama is a socialist, but because I think McCain might actually be the middle ground this country needs. The conservatives don't like him because he is too liberal and the liberals don't like him because he is too conservative. Most of the time, the best course of action lies somewhere in the middle of the two extremes. Almost never it is a good idea to take the extreme way as Obama seems to be. Other examples include, any fundamental religion, overeating, under eating, anarchy, etc. Perhaps the fact that he makes both sides just a little uncomfortable is just what this country needs to build true unity. It certainly will not come from the extremes as the Democratic party is trying to make us believe.
