John McCain Weighs In
I guess I shouldn't have asked if I didn't want to hear.
John McCain: Well, good morning, Ann, did I hear you just throw down a gauntlet? I do believe you did. Well, I always enjoy a good-natured challenge, and I am happy to weigh in here, never could resist an opportunity to share my opinions. So....
I love Bernie, but I do not love his foreign policy chops or the angle from which he makes his decisions. However, from my most recent perspective, I have developed, shall we say, a more balanced point of view, but nevertheless still believe that while participating in the human experiment, care must be taking for protection. Ann, you and Anita,* have both had experiences of non-human interference from dark forces. Why would it be any different for human forces on the planet? So we must remain vigilant and use our defensive powers and aggressive instincts wisely.
With this in mind, I am partial to Buttigieg in the Democratic field, wet behind the ears though he may be, but Joe or Bernie could handle the job if they got it, and they know their way around the world stage. I also have a good sense of the balance that Amy Klobuchar brings to the scene so she is another one to watch if and when she gives more substance on her foreign policy leanings. And then there is Mike Bloomberg….
One thing you can be sure of is that the tub of lard in the White House hasn’t a clue. It pains me to say that any one of the Democratic candidates would better serve us than our current so-called leader. The only one I would run from - though I would vote for him in a minute over Trump - is Steyer. Just don’t think we need another billionaire who requires on the job training. These guys have rarely if ever have had anyone say no to them and that puts them behind the eight ball when they actually have to listen to other people and negotiate.
We need to be able to talk to each other so that is what I would look for in a candidate aside from the obvious qualifications. The world coming will be very different from the one we have today. Toughness will be required, courage and judgement with no quarter given to deceit or cowardice. But having said that, a community of souls is the only way we will be able to save this planet, and so I ask for heaven’s intervention on behalf of all who aspire to this office and hope that their own self-awareness will grow to inform them of where they are strong and where they fall short so that they will ask for help when they need it – which, if history –and my experience - is any judge, will be all the time.
We are heading into a tricky time where balancing of competing interests is required.
Ann: OK, thank you. But I have to ask, you have a favorite, don’t you?
JMcC: Not biting, Annie, it’s just too important to make a call at this time. And, as Fred says, you never know what can happen.
