Argument: McCain will fight corruption and clean-up Washington
- Debate: McCain vs. Obama - pro argument.
"The Examiner endorses McCain-Palin". SF Examiner. 24 Sept. 2008 - "Domestically, McCain is unique in never seeking an earmark to benefit a family member, political ally back home, or financial contributor. As president, he will veto all earmarks and other pork barrel spending. He believes Americans know better than government how best to spend their hard-earned money, and he promises – in words that make many of his colleagues in Congress swallow very hard – to make famous those in government who waste or steal tax dollars."
