David Brooks has another good commentary in this mornings New York Times on the similarities and differences between Obama and McCain:
But they are very different men. Their policies obviously conflict, but their skills, world views and moral philosophies set them apart, too. One man celebrates communitarian virtues like unity, the other classical virtues like honor.
After reading the article I had a really crazy thought. If we are so set on change in our country could it be time to have an Obama/McCain ticket? Both would build on each other’s strengths and balance each other’s weaknesses.
Yeah, I know it’s a fairly dumb and unrealistic idea, but the through did cross my mind.
