Thomas Sowell On The Election

"Senator John McCain could never convince me to vote for him. Only Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama can cause me to vote for McCain." -- Thomas Sowell

The sad thing is that Sowell gives us no indication...no name...of who a preferred or acceptable candidate for him would be.

It's so easy to criticize, but give us a better option. Give us a name of someone you support, Sowell, so we can place your judgement in comparison.

Say something like, if only we would choose person X, or start a movement to elect person Y in 2012...that would be far more constructive.

Once we know who Thomas Sowell's candidate would be, then we can see how fallible his candidate, and his opinion, really is.

Of course, that's the point...once Sowell names someone, you see their flaws, and you may believe that at least some of the existing candidates are better. But Sowell is also exposed as well. One may realize that Sowell is not some perfect oracle of truth, but is like the rest of us, deeply flawed in reasoning and judgement and knowledge.

Sowell reminds me in this remark of those in business who criticize but offer no better solutions.
