Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Mac comes in last
Dan's last choice
I like the idea of instant runoff voting. The candidates I tend to gravitate to are generally the ones who poll between 1 to 3 percent nationally. This is the first time in a long time my guy is leading. So looking at the remaining 3 major candidates for president, it's pretty easy for me to rank my choices. John McCain has got to be my last choice for president.
I actually like John McCain, the mythic character, more than I like Hillary Clinton, the candidate. At least McCain's shown he's willing to say something unpopular, and that counts for a lot, even if I disagree with it. But even I must admit, Hillary's triangulated policies are closer than McCain's to my cup of Joe, so I've got to hold my noise, and put the guy I'd like to have a beer with at the bottom of the list.
