    I like Chuck brief, true comment...If McCain would have picked Rice I think the poll numbers would be vastly different...but that would have taken a true 'maverik"! These people at the McCain/Palin rallies scare the heck out of me....

    Mr. Cooper

    Could you plaeas ask McCain, could he please define winning the war in Iraq for American people. They have a $80 billion surplus and a established government. What else do we have to do for them? If our Generals say the voilents has subsided and we have accomplished our goals there. How much longer. If we have not accompished our goals please defined them for the American people?

    I don't know why people of America worry about color because when they send the troops to fight for Amercia they don't worry about the race. I don't understand when it cames to choosing a president why Amercians worry about the color or race. If they can fight for America they can run for America as well.

    John McCain will admit to the american people tonight that he's made the biggest mistake in his life by picking Sarah Palin in front of Condi Rice.He will finally admit that he did not agree when George Bush picked Condi Rice as SECRETARY. Then he will tell the american people how racial he was,is,and will always be. John McCain-–The ANGRY GOD.

    Falsley accusing Barack Obama of being a terrorist will not jumpstart the economy. Falsley accusing Barack Obama of being a terrorist is nothing more than cheap personal attack and has no place in politics. Barack Obama believes in running a campaign that is based on the issues. The most important issue is the economy. Giving tax cuts to the middle class is a good thing. Goverment Regulation is a good thing. George Bush's economic plan was a complete failure. George Bush only wanted tax breaks for the wealthiest 1% and he wanted less goverment regulation. The result – the worst economic crisis since the great depression. Vote Obama-Biden on Nov. 4th, 2008. They represent the change that we need.

    Hey Bret,

    Does the eye color, or changing eye color of any human being an issue if the person is or is not qualified to be President of the United States?

    Go find something to do young man.

    Serious question:
    I've known many people in my 40 yrs. being in the service industry. Never have I met a bright blue eyed person, turn into a dark eyed person due to aging, or any other reason. I have known people to get colored contact lenses, but never from bright to almost black. So here is the question... What happened to McCain’s eye color ? Is it a health issue causes that, or does he wear contacts? This is an observation I noticed early on, and it's really starting to freak me out. If you or your staff can answer this for me, I would really appreciate it. All records I have looked up has nothing on this. If it is a health thing, should we all be concerned? Thank you
