I don't support him. I wouldn't support him. I'm not looking foward to him being in office, but what can we do about it? Nothing. Bush ran this country into the ground. McCain didn't stand a prayer. Most Americans would have elected Charles Manson into office rather than put another Republican in office for another 4 years.
