I affirm: McCain run for president

I'll refute my opponents case then move to present my own.

"I THINK THAT OUR COUNTRY IS IN TO MUCH TERMOIL TO HAVE A GUY THAT IS HIS AGE"

--> Out of the 2, McCain and Obama, McCain has the experience and right idea when it comes to this "turmoil." In a time when we are at war, and Islamic Extremism is threatening America, we need a president who is tough on terror and who will not return to Pre-9/11 security measures. Furthermore, his age should not be a factor. Ronald Reagan was his age and look how the great the country turned out with him as our President.

"I THINK THAT WE NEED SOMEONE WITH FRESH IDEAS"

--> No one has "fresh ideas." E.g. Obama marks the old democratic Party and socialist philosophy, that has been spreading through the world for decades now. Socialism is not a FRESH idea. Furthermore, jsut because something is new does not make it good, right or effective.

Uh, well there is a character length or 1,000 words...

i think another way Cirro could have approached this debate is this;
there is nothing wrong with a person running for president. they might not make it, but whether or not they should is an ethical issue, and has nothing to do with what they stand for(most of the time). the USA is for the most part democratic, and we want everyone's voice heard. everyone should run for president, if they so wish. mccain wants to run for president, and we being a democracy, we should not stop him.
