So, compared to McCain, was Obama actually the lesser evil?
I thought so at the time, but I’ve been wondering for a while. As I’ve pointed out, frequently, Bush failed to slash Social Security. Obama is probably going to do so soon. I doubt McCain, any more than Bush, could have done so.
Of course, on the negative side McCain might have gone to war with Iran, wouldn’t have given up on DADT no matter how hard he was pushed, and, er, other stuff. And Palin as President isn’t something to look at lightly.
But domestically, would he have been worse? Maybe, maybe even probably, but it’s no longer clear cut. The fact that one can even ask the question, can even argue it, is beyond sad.
