McCain was one of Obama’s chief enablers. McCain basically punted and didn’t run a campaign.

McCain didn't want to win, because he was far to enthralled and impressed by Obama. That comment about "no reason to fear an Obama presidency" wasn't a gaffe. It was a tacit endorsement. No one will ever convince me McCain wanted that victory.

I think you really nailed it. He as much as endorsed obama in early October and mailed it in from that moment on. Wanted to go down in history as the gracious loser to the first black president rather than a winning candidate. To paraphrase John Calhoun, he decided he’d “rather be wrong than president.”

I was just going to post the same. Suspending the campaign and the “You have nothing to fear with an Obama presidency- He’s a good man” comment ended any chance McCain had.

Can anyone guess what McCain’s payoff from the RATs was?
