McCain fan: 'This is his time'

Marilyn Dillon has no doubt about her choice for president, and she made sure to share it with everyone heading south on 26th Street West this morning.

"John McCain, I believe he has the heart and soul of this country foremost in his being," said the 53-year-old home care companion as she held a homemade sign proclaiming, "Safety 1st Maccain."

"I would not dream of not voting for him. This is his time," Dillon said.

Many motorists on the busy thoroughfare honked and waved at Dillon as she stood on the side of the road just south of 48th Avenue West, around the corner from her home. As of 9 a.m., she had been there for about an hour and planned to return after taking a break to vote in her precinct at a nearby church.

As for the "Safety 1st" message on her sign, Dillon said, "I think the economy will balance itself out. ... "I think the state of the world is the most serious."
