Many people whose opinions I respect and admire have pointed out that voting for President based on which guy you'd rather have a beer with is idiotic, because what matters is how competent a candidate is, and how sensible his proposed policies are, not how folksy or average-Joe-like he is. And I agree with that. I voted (early!) for Barack Obama because I believe he will be a better President than McCain would. Heck, I believe he's the best Presidential candidate we've had in a long time.
But y'know what? If I drank beer, I think I would rather have a beer with Obama than with McCain. McCain's nice enough, but he's a little... creepy, y'know what I mean? And people who think Obama can't be folksy, down-to-earth, and just plain friendly clearly haven't been watching him. I'd be glad to have a Dr Pepper with him.
