In answer to your first question, change from George W. Bush to pretty much anyone or anything would be a marked improvement. [Psssst! Wanna buy a watch? Viewpoints, May 14]

While I respect John McCain and thank him for his service to our country, too many of the things he is now advocating hew too closely to the obviously failed policies of the Bush Administration. That is reason enough for me to support Barack Obama. I know that Bush’s policies are more worthless than a fake Rolex. I, for one, am willing to take a chance on anyone who promises to do things differently.
