McCain has the MSM, Republican leadership, name recognition, incumbency, numerous political connections, etc. He’s got a lot going for him. Unfortunately, he’s also got this pesky thing called his record in office.
You can bet McCain AND the other RINOs are pulling out all the stops on this one, and he’s weak. I mean the man has the darling of tea partiers herself, Sarah Palin, campaigning for him, and he’s STILL weak. Don’t you love it?
If McCain wins he will have a strong grudge against the conservative movement. He’ll go back to his maverick ways, striking compromises on every critical issue, particularly if he views this as his last term. His behavior will likely make Arlen Specter look like a moderate.
