Let’s get real here. McCain was neck and neck with Obama and in fact in some polls ahead before the economy tanked. When it tanked his numbers dropped like a lead weight. Blame the chicken sh%ts on Wall Street who were selling off their stocks as if there was no tomorrow. They panicked and handed this election to Obama.
McCain's only hope was to have taken Romney as Veep. Mitt would've added tremendous economic background to the ticket, in fact I doubt that Chuckie would've pulled this stunt with the Mittster on the team. He also would've been a big puller with young white woman. Oh well, Romney in 2012 ?
