John McCain

note: video is 68 minutes long.

John McCain sees a world with absolute good and absolute evil. The U.S. is good and the terrorists are evil. From that opening premise he forms the basis of his political ideology.

What I found most interesting about him was that, although I completely disagree with his opening premise, and start my own political thoughts from very different premises, we still seem to reach many of the same conclusions on what actual actions should be taken. Namely: less military might, more diplomatic talking things out.

Also, after nearly eight years of Bush Jr., it was refreshing to see someone capable of intelligent, rational thought from the conservative end of the political spectrum (even if I disagree with the specifics).
