What Does McCain Do Now?

What Does McCain Do Now?

John McCain fought a good, long battle for the Presidency. After his concession speech (which we heard some Dems in our neck of the woods actually thought was very gracious, generous and humble) our thoughts turned to what someone does after a bid for the White House.

McCain is well past the age of "official" retirement, but it's hard to imagine him just not doing anything. Fortunately, there are a great many things to keep one occupied when going to the (Oval) office is no longer an option. And then there's the fact that he still has two years left in the Senate this term, and could run again in 2010 (which would make him a rich 80 at the end of his career.)

Whether he retires or not, we're sure that some R&R is on the agenda in the coming days. What a long, strange trip it's been...

What do you think? After a run at the highest office in the land, should McCain be thinking of ways to spend his retirement? Or should people who are as passionate about their jobs as he is keep working as long as they can?

My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest surprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan. You are to contact this GODSENT LENDER via Email: Lexieloancompany@yahoo.com OR Text +18168926958


If I was McCain, I would take a relaxing vacation away from America. I would go some where tropical. He deserves it.


I agree with Caroline. McCain deserves a break after the non-stop campaigning. After that, I can't imagine him having a normal retirement. I see him being heavily involved in politics until the end.


I think McCain definitely needs a break. But I also think he is an educated and passionate politician who can still majorly contribute to rebuilding our nation. He was not a good fit for the White House, but he still has much to offer in this movement toward great change.
