I have seen TV ads for this movie and I am anxious to see it. What a tragedy that such a big and wonderful country as ours with enormous talent in all areas can seem to produce only spoiled, out-of-touch leaders. Why are so many in this country in love with "likable" leaders like Reagan, W. or even Sarah Palin?? What a novelty it will be if we elect someone who is actually qualified for the job! I agree that McCain seems to mirror W. in many ways. If this was ten years ago, John McCain might well have been a credible candidate, but I think his heart just isn't in it this time around. I really do wonder why people such as John McCain or George W. Bush even bother with running for president? They already have money and good lives--far better than nearly any us "common folk." Why ruin such a nice existence with the nagging duties of being the president? The McCains already have a jet--admittedly, it's not as grand as Air Force One, but hey, it's a jet! Maybe I am crazy but I think John McCain is ready for this whole thing to be over so that he can relax and enjoy life again--as a senator and husband of a rich wife. In the meantime, Sarah Palin has tasted life in the limelight, and I bet she is quite intoxicated by it all. When Ted Stevens is finished, perhaps she could step into his position, gain credibility as a senator and make her own bid for the top spot in 2012. In the meantime, I hope Barack Obama is elected as our president and brings back some status to that now very tarnished position.
