Soros and his Open Society Institute are also heavy contributors to McCain's "Reform" PAC.
Recall that Soros has always favored "campaign finance reform". And got what he wanted in McCain-Feingold -- which empowewred him to buy the Democrat party.
Big Journalism and Soros were behind McCain-Feingold, and McCain has been in the tank for what Big Journalism wanted ever since the Keating affair went down.
Which has meant that McCain would be toast the moment it suited the convenience of Big Journalism to break out the old Keating files - and meant that it was never in the cards for McCain to win the general election. And that it therefore is a fool's errand to try to elect him by nominating him for the position, since Big Journalism will always prefer the socialist to the merely tolerable RINO.
