Neither here nor there

Is John McCain's presidential candidacy dead yet? My buddy Steve Stark thinks about why it may be.

My out-of-town-ness caused me to overlook this nice post about McCain by Bill McDonald.

You know it’s really bad if I would vote for The Grate Satin St. Hilary before McCain.

At this moment in history, this country is too partisan to support such an independent candidiate.

McCain has a popular constituency in the American Press, but that's about it.

Stealing this from somewhere else, I'd say the stroll through "safe" Bagdad was his Dukakis in the tank moment.

...his Dukakis in the tank moment.

I had the same thought the other day. I guess he's going on 60 Minutes this weekend to explain himself. Should be interesting.

The vision of Rove's permanent majority turned out to be a lie to get his guy into the White House. They haven't done a thing since Reagan left office to bring along any new leaders which is how you end up with Dole and Bush at the top of the ticket. Even at the state level, they're dead. Everywhere. It's going to take Republicans a generation or better to come back.

With the millions upon millions being raised by the presidential candidates more than 18 months before the election, can we now state without reservation that the McCain-Feingold effort to take big money out of politics was a total case of wishful thinking?

Correct me if I am wrong on this but the McCain-Feingold bill was working. Then the Dems, who were falling way behind in fundraising because of it, formed the 527 groups with no objection from the federal elections commission. The Republicans soon followed.

I don't think candidates qualify as 527s, do they?

Apparently, only if they were a Swift Boat veteran who wanted to sabotage his own campaign.

McCain lost me as a voter when he wanted amnesty for illegals.
