Thank You Senator John McCain

Truly, if anyone in my blog's cyberspace world knows Senator John McCain, please send him my sincere gratitude for stopping an audience response of ugly proportions from becoming a fear tactic attack against Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign.

How is it that a woman in the town hall audience recently could be so misinformed as to ask Senator McCain to tell her that Senator Obama is an Arab? Who planted that pitiful woman in the town hall audience?

Thankfully, Senator John McCain, you are a patriotic human being. Unfortunately for Americans, your time for being elected president of the United States is past, due to circumstances beyond your control, like your age, the awful economy, your vice-presidential choice of a running mate selected to please the right wing of the Republican base. Nevertheless, your leadership and moral judgement in response to angry town hall audiences are as fresh as ever.

Writing as an American wife of a Viet Nam War Veteran who happened to be serving "in country", in Chu Lai, when you were a prisoner of war in Hanoi, I want to sincerely thank you for recently taking the microphone away from the audience member who was spreading misinformation about Senator Barack Obama.

This year, I am voting for the political party that deserves at least 4 years to change the direction of Washington DC; this, after 8 years of Republican leadership which took our country backwards, rather than forwards.

Racism and some degree of completely unjustified paranoia seems to underlie this year's election, like, as though electing a black man is somehow not American; or, wrongly, a bi-racial man in the White House will make us all socialists. It's balderdash stuff of the middle of the 19th-century. Gratefully, your actions, in support of Senator Obama's character at the town hall meeting, was the right thing to do for America. You helped to educate people who simply don't understand what this election is really about.

Please listen up, you Americans out there in cyberspace, who mistakenly believe we are voting about fear versus progress!

We are electing a change in leadership in Washington DC.

Fact two, there are only 2 choices on the table for the winning ballot; either one of whom will bring about change. In fact, the choices are both excellent men who have different ideas about how to bring about the change of direction our country needs with regard to foreign policy, the economy, health are, energy independence, the environment and national security.

Thanks you, Senator McCain. Your quick minded response to the wrong minded statements from angry Americans who are misinformed on the meaning of this year's election is sincerely appreciated by me and Americans who admire your patriotic service to our country.

Perhaps, somebody in cyberspace will send you this message with my heartfelt gratitude attached.
