A friend just asked me on Facebook, “Obama or McCain?”

My answer:


We can talk policy differences (which are real), or you can look at the level of judgment exhibited in their VP choices. Which one of them chose a VP who's actually qualified to serve as president, and which one chose a VP to pander to a strident subset of the electorate?

Extrapolate from that to the type of people they'll choose as Cabinet members, Supreme Court justices, ambassadors....

‘Nuff said.
