The Difference Between McCain and Obama

So, I watched the biographies of McCain, Palin and Obama. McCain and Palin joined government, seeing it as a way to have a voice. Obama started off as a community organizer, basically getting neighborhoods that would have rose up by themselves in generations past to do so after riling them up. He saw government as a way to do things without the uprising part.

This is an important distinction. McCain (and to a similar extent, Palin) rose up through the ranks of government and started to see that the people in it were not serving the people, but their own interests. Obama saw what government did and became adept at playing the political game to get what he wanted done.

So there is a difference. Obama ultimately wants government to do more of whatever its doing, McCain wants government to do better.
