A gentleman recently wrote he didn’t know what to talk about with regard to Barack Obama. Where do I start? I can think of many issues and policies that everyone should be discussing.

But first let me ask, has anyone else ever heard of a plot to destroy the Pentagon? I know I haven’t, and I’ve been watching Tim Russert’s Meet the Press, Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer’s, and other reputable sources for many years, and not once have I heard any report of a plot against the Pentagon. I Googled it and not one result came up with this plot.

Back to what to talk about. Maybe we can talk about the economy, energy and the environment, or healthcare and bankruptcy  Let’s talk about what our candidates say. I’ve always admired John McCain and his views. If President Bush should have taken his advice maybe the war wouldn’t have cost us so many lives or strained our economy so badly.

I was impressed, when Mr. Obama was asked about what type of man he was looking for in a vice president, his first response was integrity. He also recently stated he would like someone who didn’t always agree with his views. Encouraging diverse perspectives is a good trait — President Truman gave a cabinet appointment to someone that was 26th on the list of possible candidates because he wasn’t afraid to disagree and give opposing views.
