McCain is in favor of...

repealing Roe V Wade.
Teaching creationism should be decided by school districts.
Same sex marriage us to states.
don't ask, don't tell.
Climate change is real .. in favor of nuclear power.
(he has a mixed record on the environment - good for a republican)
Pro-free trade
against gun control
Rated 25% by APHA, indicating a anti-public health voting record. (Dec 20030
"Waterboarding is torture; we're not going to torture people"
Rated 18% by USBC, indicating an open-border stance. (Dec 2006)

(if you google USBC, you get things such as:
United States Bowling Congress
United States Barista Championship
United States Breastfeeding Committee
Upper Stratton Baptist Church
but I think this refers to:
U.S. Border Control)
mixed record on tax issues

Looks like you've picked your issues and done some research. Good going!

Roe vs Wade: So were Ford, Reagan, Bush Sr, and Bush. Judicial appointments make a difference, but they still have to be confirmed.

Curriculum decisions should be made locally, even moronic ones.

Don't ask, don't tell: won't be relevant for much longer

Same Sex Marriage: "us to states?" typo? I say one spouse per customer.

Climate change is real/nuclear power: works for me. But here's a question: If we do have the power to change the climate, who's to say what the right level of CO2 should be? Different parts of the world would benefit from different levels of CO2...

There's no such thing as free trade.

I'm not any more comfortable accepting a candidate's percentage rating from an activitst group than I am accepting one from a corporation.

Torture: Given his past, it's easy to believe him on this one.

McCain's not perfect by any stretch (Keating 5) but he seems to me to have more sense than the rest of the field.

If you change your staement to read ... "McCain's not perfect by any stretch (Keating 5) but he seems to me to have more sense than the rest of the {republican} field." ... then I agree completely.
