John McCain probably would have been a fine president. I couldn't vote for him because of his judgment in statements and certain decisions, but I believe he understands what faces this country, perhaps as well as or better than most of his Pachyderm counterparts.
I think his statements on Larry King (which I read on this Moderate Voice post) are precisely what this country, particularly those on the right, need to hear.
Good for him. And good for America.
