Stick to the issues

By Chuck Kajer

With Hilary Clinton's suspension of her campaign for president, it appears we are down to two major party candidates for November's presidential election.

John McCain is an American hero, having served his country in Vietnam, where he was captured and spent several years in a Vietnamese Prisoner of War Camp. After retiring from the U.S. Navy, he was elected to Congress and later was elected to the U.S. Senate.

Barack Obama has lived the American Dream, coming from humble beginnings to working as a community organizer in poor neighborhoods in Chicago. He became involved in politics and eventually was elected to the U.S. Senate. As the presumptive Democratic nominee, he will be the first African-American to head a major party presidential ticket.

Here's what we Americans should expect from these two distinguished public servants: a campaign based on issues, on what's best for the future of the United States. This nation needs serious answers to serious problems. What we don't need is name-calling, mud-slinging, rumor and innuendo. It would be nice if voters would reject attempts to put unflattering labels on the candidates based on twisted facts and faulty assumptions.

The voters deserve better.
