I always wondered where McCain's money was coming from in the primaries. Romney had alot of personal money and backers and Guiliani had a big war chest as well. Huckabee ran a low budget campaign on alot of personal contributions.

But how did McCain go from being at the bottom rung of the polls to being able to run a ton of ads, hire a huge staff and pay for travel? WHich eventually brought him to win

Don’t EVER forget how complicit the Media was in basically pimping and selecting our candidate for us.

He wasn’t my first choice, but really, what choice did I have? When Sarah came on board, it was easier to swallow hard and pull the lever for McCain.

Little did they know what they were really getting in her, though. ;)

That would be Meg Whitman (ebay) and Carly Fiorina (Hewlett Packard).
