"McCain supporters attribute the campaign's summertime transformation - which has been accompanied by small but steady gains in polls - to a more direct and disciplined operation, thanks in part to the newly promoted Steve Schmidt, an unapologetically ruthless veteran of the 2004 Bush campaign."

Change in leadership marks McCain's climb.

We can only hope it keeps running smoothly because it finally has the luster McCain's campaign once lacked.

That aside, if this is the pic of Steve Schmidt - funny, he looks like a little "healthier" version of the Clinton's boy, the ragin' cajun, Carville! Wonder if being bald is a requirement to being able to run a successful political campaign, LOL.

Schmidt is like a one-man reactionary force of immediate, terse and effective counter-attack, almost like the Barry- moves were not only presupposed but actually foreknown. This is just pure poetry to observe.

The McCain campaign has been very good. This guy is indeed a Republican Carville. The strategy is purely technical. When a candidate stands for very little, this is certainly the way to go.

Atwater would go after Democrats on ideology. That's not what McCain's people do. They cede the arena to liberalism and don't cross swords with it. McCain is fairly liberal himself. It's strictly about getting him elected. They are drawing personal distinctions between Obama and McCain. This is now a personal election about two men, and is thus a brilliant strategy.

McCain has a lot of weaknesses with the base, but the GOP knows that they have nowhere to go, and will vote for endless holding actions to defeat the far left with less than conservative candidates. I never in a million years thought McCain could be on the verge of victory.

We’ll see what happens.

McCain came out and said he wasn’t picking a pro-choice candidate already. And that he “got the message”

To quote Barry “I hope” that’s a good sign. :)

karl rove was just amazing to get W elected twice and win 3 congressional elections. I don’t fault him for the 4th.
The mccain campaign has improved sooo much that he has a great shot at winning.

Ever since McCain won the Nomination in spite of everything—after those photos of him carrying his own bags—:) I just had the feelng it was going to be the tortoise and the hare. He was just plodding along, making his case. I was for Rudy because I felt he would be no more Mr. Nice Guy. Glad to see Schmidt is finally knocking heads together and taking no guff!!

Don’t know how I got on this Ping list but thank you very much!

Has anyone here seen some of the “Web ads” for YouTube that McCain’s campaign is putting out there? Some of them are quite hysterical...

There are two versions of a web “ad” called “The One” - Part II features comparisons of Obama and Moses in the 10 Commandments - it’s pretty funny really. Totally plays on the whole “Obamessiah” thing...

Here are the links to the Web Vids:

The One - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mopkn0lPzM8

The One II - The Road to Denver - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PetxaA42OuE

Here is a link to the McCain Channel that you can subscribe to at YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/user/JohnMcCaindotcom

The campaign is definitely taking advantage of the YouTube “craze”... That’s a good sign IMHO that they are at least attempting to reach out to the younger voters who are so enamored with Obama. :)

Nice catch!

Too bad for Obama many of his young supporters were asleep when he sent them their text message at 3am.

The rest that were up didn’t know they got it because they were stoned out of their mind.
