    McCain is just saying anything he can to get more voters on his side before Tuesday. His interests lie with OFFLINE gambling, so of course (if he gets elected) he's not going to support online gambling because it's going to eat into the profits of offline casinos.

    And to be perfectly honest here, NEITHER of the two; Obama and McCain,

    i would have also liked to have seen someone else running for president instead, but i voted from my heart, not for the party but for whom i think would be a better leader to get us out of this mess, this is my own opinion, and i still will urge those who havent early voted to do so, it is your right and your opinion that will be heard at the polls, if someone doesnt vote they shouldn't bitch about it later!!!!!!!!!!!!

    McCain didn't "buck" his party when it came to online casinos. In arguably his most important test this year he caved in and allowed very anti-online casino language to be inserted in the Republican platform.

    I must have missed it, is there a link to this information? A video or quote of him allowing this?

    I know the anti-gambling text was removed, then added back, but was it McCain himself who added it back?

    No, I'm not able to give a quote, or say exactly how it went down. What I mean is, ultimately a party's nominee has to "sign off" on what's in the platform document. So if he wanted to stand up for the rights of online casino players, he missed his chance.

    I agree with Winbig.

    Traditionally, support of land-based gambling is the same as opposition to online gambling. John McCain is not about to support online gambling, take my word for it.

    Don't expect McCain to buck his party either - highly unlikely.

    ...by what has been stated already in this thread. Think about it.

    If McCain wasn't able to stop his party from declaring its support for "the law prohibiting gambling over the Internet," how is he going to have the political courage to go against his party and sign a bill regulating online gambling if it ever comes to his presidential desk?

    Ok, so it's just all speculation.

    I'll repeat what I have said from day one, neither McCain, nor Obamba is fit to hold the presidential position!

    Nicely done, Lots0.

    McCain may have positioned himself as a maverick - as one not afraid to stand up to his party or against what he believes in - but he is no maverick.

    Obama may not be any better from the perspective of the online gambling industry, but he certainly has a lot less back-scratching to do than McCain would have had. That alone gives me hope that he will have an open mind.

    Just because McCain plays craps doesn't mean he supports gambling (of any sort) - and just because Obama is a poker player doesn't mean he supports gambling either.

    All I know is that I believe Obama will be more in tune with the times.
