Things I dislike, politically:
1. Pharma/Health Care: the cost savings in health care aren't to be found (as the Democrats say) in administration. It's going to be in procedures, labor costs and drug prices. Considering the latter two are how my family
2. His stance on the war. Let's face it: I disagree with America.
Things I dislike, stylistically/personally:
1. Obama has little executive experience. His campaign is the largest organization he's ever run; he's been very good at it. How much credit can we give him? Caveats: Palin, McCain, Palin.
2. Obama has very little political courage. He has not fought against the Establishment (whoever they are) -- he's consistently gone along. Prediction: his calls for teacher pay/education reform will be the first to get traded away.
3. His stance on free trade. Considering that's the path to future American competitiveness, that's a bad thing.
Things I like, issues-wise:
1. I like his noises on transparency in government.
2. I hope he'll take on the teacher's unions -- I just don't think it will happen.
3. I think he'll fund NIH
Things I like, personally:
1. He appears to be a genuinely thoughtful person and a half-decent writer.
2. He seems 'cool' and a hell of a lot less awkward and a better speaker than Bush.
3. I like how his faith informs him.
There it is. In a couple of weeks, I'll hit my 2 page list of things I don't like about McCain.
