It’s obvious that John McCain sold out in 2004 after a bitter divisive primary in 2000. In the intervening years the Bush Administration has been a one disaster after another. McCain, to have any shot in the general election will need to distance himself from the repeated Bush Disasters.
But photos like these, which exist in many places will make that all the harder. John McCain, in my opinion, is a man more comfortable attacking from the outside than being the leader on the inside. He has a formidable mountain to climb.
With the increased Democratic turnout it may be impossible. BTW: Many take this general election for granted. I don’t. We’d better be ready to fight for every vote. That’s why we need a warrior as our nominee.
