This Man is Living in 1823

I saw that interview, and it made me furious and sad at the same time. I cried.

In 50 years, people are going to look back and feel really, really dumb.

Let's hear it for civil rights movements!

I don't agree with what he said, but I was impressed with his soft-spoken nature and the respect that he showed Ellen. I think it's ok to disagree with each other as long as we're talking about things and not slamming doors on each other. My respect for both Senator McCain and Ellen went up a notch.

I think he handled it very politically. 1823 Or not, his right to that opinion (and you to yours)is what makes living in this country so darn wonderful.

I thought he looked weak and small, because he couldn't debate an issue where his entire stance is based on the "because I said so" argument. I was sooo proud of Ellen for not passively agreeing to disagree. Now I want Ellen to ask the same question of Obama.

By the title of your post, I initially thought you meant McCain moved into the 18th floor of your apartment.

Not that that's better or worse than what you wrote.

Agreeing to disagree is fine when the disagreement doesn't determine how someone else gets to live their life. You can agree to disagree on the best place to take a vacation, cook your steak, or even raise your child. Agreeing to disagree on an issue such as the right to marry the person you love does not fall into a similar category.
