The GOP is still trying to grasp what has happened in the last three special elections. They lost by a landslide in that trio of contests. Now they are admitting they could easily lose 20 more House seats and 6 Senate seats this Fall. But are they willing to follow the lead of their (presumptive) presidential candidate? Of course not. McCain is considered by neo-cons to be a RINO. His precepts out of step with the party leadership. Not recognizing that the GOP is out of step with the nation's voters. A large majority of our Republican Congress members rode into Washington on the coattails of Dubya. And for 6 years they would send legislation for signature that he wanted enacted. Rubber stamping the neo-con philosophy into our legal codes. The only people who received tax breaks were big business and the top 5% of income earners. Perpetuating the "trickle-down" theory of economics espoused by HRH Reagan, 2 decades prior.

What the American people want is leaders who aren't too far left nor too far right. Leadership that will restore our Constitution as the ultimate law of the land. Both McCain and Obama are close to the center of what the country is looking for and desperately needs. McCain isn't as conservative as his party wants and Obama isn't as liberal as his party desires. Both represent the opposite side of the same moderation coin. I just hope by having two branches of government controlled by the same political party that we don't create a pendulum effect. It would be nice to see the needle pointed at the center for a (long) while.

Just my 2-cents.
