Can Hilliary voters support McCain/Palin now?
McCain's new plan for home owners is almost the same as Hilliary's plan was. Now Hilliary supporter have a legitimate reason to vote for McCain.
John McCain believes there is nothing more important than keeping alive the American dream of owning a home. Priority number one is to keep well-meaning, deserving home owners who are facing foreclosure in their homes.
John McCain's approach to helping sub-prime or other financially strapped mortgage borrowers is built on sound principles:
No taxpayer money should bail out real estate speculators or financial market participants who failed to perform due diligence in assessing credit risks. Any assistance for borrowers should be focused solely on homeowners and any government assistance to the banking system should be based solely on preventing systemic risk.
Any policy of financial assistance should be accompanied by reforms that promote greater transparency and accountability to ensure we never face this problem again.
John McCain has proposed a new "HOME Plan" to provide robust, timely and targeted help to those hurt by the housing crisis. Under his HOME Plan, every deserving American family or homeowner will be afforded the opportunity to trade a burdensome mortgage for a manageable loan that reflects their home's market value.
Eligibility: Holders of a sub-prime mortgage taken after 2005 who live in their home (primary residence only); can prove creditworthiness at the time of the original loan; are either delinquent, in arrears on payments, facing a reset or otherwise demonstrate that they will be unable to continue to meet their mortgage obligations; and can meet the terms of a new 30 year fixed-rate mortgage on the existing home.
John McCain's HOME Plan Will Keep 200,000 To 400,000 Families From Losing Their Homes. "But at the same time, McCain is calling for aggressive federal action to help keep 200,000 to 400,000 families from losing their homes. That plan has many of the elements of a proposal by Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., and Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., requiring participating lenders to forgive part of the loan principal and then write a new loan that would be backed by the federal government through the Federal Housing Administration." (Tom Raum, "Everyone's Invited: McCain Economic Plan Draws From Both Parties," Tucson Citizen, 4/17/08)
How It Works: Individuals pick up a form at any Post Office or download the form over the Internet and apply for a HOME loan. The FHA HOME Office certifies that the individual is qualified, and contacts the individual's mortgage servicer. The mortgage servicer writes down and retires the existing loan, which is replaced by an FHA guaranteed HOME loan from a lender.
John McCain will bolster groups like Neighborworks America that provide mortgage assistance to homeowners in their communities.

I support Obama, I do not support voter fraud. These stories come out every election about both sides and they end up getting a little ridiculous. The biggest problem is they round up people with no jobs, then pay them to meet quotas of the number of people they've registered. It's a perfectly legal thing to do (and rest assured ACORN is not the only organization that does this), but it leads to problems like the ones you're seeing now According to the Drudge Report's links, whenever ACORN officials have received registrations that look illegal they report them right away (at least in Las Vegas they did anyway--that's where the Drudge Report links directly). If they are not reporting them, then that's illegal. Now, the other part of this is--registering someone illegally is not the same as voter fraud-as registering to vote is not the same as voting. If someone showed up and tried to vote under one of these false registrations then it would be illegal. Mark my words-none of this will amount to anything other than a slap on the wrist and the termination of the people who illegally filled out their forms.

Hillary supporters should definitely support McCain-Palin. If Obama wins, then it will be impossible for Hillary to ever be President. That means Obama will run for 2 terms and then Hillary will be about the same age as McCain if she would even get the opportunity then. If Obama loses, Hillary can be the candidate for 2012 and win.

In someways, McCain is a Democrat, albeit a Reagan Democrat.
I think Hillary is privately envious of Sarah Palin and secretly wants her and McCain to win, so she will be viewed as the knight in shining armor that will ride in to save the Democrat party from the destruction they are inflicting on themselves by nominating the furthest left candidate in American history since Huey P. Long. However her and her husband are hardly centrists or moderates either.
I am biased as a Libertarian-Republican, I willl admit my bias.

I had already left the democratic party. No way would I vote for Obama. The people who think that McCain will not get the Hillary supporters are fooling themselves.

You can randomly take two people and find many points they actually agree on no matter how different their views are overall if you look hard enough. I'm sure David Duke and Louis Farrakhan have similar views on jews but i doubt the Nation of Islam will be supporting David if he runs for president again.
The bottom line is that Mccain/Palin (especially Palin) differ dramatically on too many key issues to persuade Hillary voters to support them. The only reason a Hillary voter would ponder it is the gender issue and that's a pretty hard sell considering Palin is the opposite of Hillary on many women's issues.
They are drastically different on most issues concerning health care and the economy in general. Aside from cherrypicking (like you did in this question), you are not going to convince many Hillary supporters that trickle down economics is the way to go and that is what the Mccain/ Palin ticket is trying to sell.

If they did this country would have a serious problem. Joining an entirely different set of beliefs because your candidate is out, only if you were an extremist retard.
John McCain is the worst of the three though, solution of buying banks. I am sorry all his policies follow Hoover's he would doom us. You McCain supporters are blind he tries to give you pre-secured figures the truth is Obama.
Sorry to tell you this but its time for the america we remember to return. Hillary told the public she supports Barrack SHE WON'T BUDGE ON A SINGLE ISSUE, she would lose her chance of ever getting elected if she stabbed Barrack in the back. Her ultimate goal is election, to go back on your word isn't doing so.
AND FOR THE RECORD YOUR ATTEMPT TO SWAY VOTES WON'T WORK. **** YOU STYLE SUCKS. No offense but the first thing you ****** up on, is you don't have any background to your self, secondly pure evidence of Hillary's betrayal. And third entire McCain
plan cough* death sentence.Source(s): Obama/Biden 08'

Dream on. Hillary voters are intelligent politically informed people. The majority of them wouldn't vote for this negative mud throwing lying pair of desperate politicians if you paid them. After the way McCain and his attack doggy Palin have been relying on smears, because they can't win on the issues, pigs will sprout wings and fly over Chicago before McCain gets any notable support from Hillary supporters. We are still Democrats and we still hate the tactics of the gutter scraping Republicans who will make up anything and exaggerate anything to try and win an election. What disgusting people they are.
Takfam: Amen to that, you nailed that one!
Quite simply, you are full of beans. I worked on Hillary's campaign. All of the women I worked with on her campaign here in Indiana have come together to work on Obama's campaign. ONE of the over 100 women I worked with in the primaries is a PUMA. The rest of them licked their wounds, about half held out for awhile and then ran like the wind to Obama after McCain picked that malicious twit Palin.

I like what Gloria Steinem wrote regarding this question (and I paraphrase): Voting for McCain because you supported Hillary would be like going to buy a particular pair of shoes and, finding the store was out of your size, cutting your own feet off.Source(s): Los Angeles Times

You miss the point. McCain insulted Hillary voters by selecting Palin. "Hey, we'll just pick any woman that's in line with party values. Those broads will vote for anyone with a vagina."
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned and all of the pandering in the world can't take back the insult that has already been cast against US women on the part of John McCain.
- YaddaYaddaLv 41 decade ago
Because Palin is an Idiot. We will NEVER, EVER, EVER let that woman enter into a position that will give her the possibility of becoming Commander in Chief.
Besides, Hillary sent me to the Obama camp.
