If John McCain And Barack Obama Switched Bodies...

Thu Nov 06, 2008 1:59 am

Let's say John McCain, the pale, old senator with skin cancer from Arizona switched bodies with Barack Obama, the young, clean, black senator from Illinois. Pretend that every word that has been spoken in this campaign by each candidate has still been spoken, only by a person with different personalities, speech, and appearance. Political views remain the exact same. Would peace-loving John McCain have won the election, leaving the tax-hating Barack Obama in the dust? Would there have been as much of a voter turnout?

Just wondering what your views would be on this bizarre experiment. Please, for the sake of the pathetic aviation nerds, no flaming.

You know, the other day, someone posted these images on another site.


I read the topic heading and it was the first thing I thought of. Weird.

Obama would be pissed. He's at least 5 years away from needing any viagra.

Is it me or does that 2nd/lower photo resemble Frankie Muniz of Malcom in the Middle and Codie Banks fame?

1st/upper photo: McBama

2nd/lower photo: O'Cain

Too late to edit my earlier post. The upper picture (McBama) somewhat resembles SC Justice Clarence Thomas.

Basically you are asking if Obama was white and older and McCain was black and younger, what would happen?

I think the US would have voted the same way because the people voted for change. People voted for the Democratic viewpoints. People voted the republicans out.

Race and age had nothing to do with this election.... it was historic because the best man happened to be black... I voted McCain but I support Obama.
