Yesterday, the GraniteGrok participated in a blogger conference call with Senator John McCain. Here are some his observations and a link to the post:
"The most immediate observation I have of McCain is that he does come off as a rather regular, genuine man, and he is quite comfortable with ordinary people. Additionally, he allows unscripted, unscreened access for questions and comments, both friendly, and not. That, in and of itself, separates him from several other candidates."
