Well just that McCain had the same kind of optimism and he diverted a lot of resources there and ended up losing by 10 points. That state has been fools gold for years.

In 2008 there was a fever pitch in PA for Obama.

McCain never stood a chance.

For Romney, the odds are better than they have been for a GOP presidential candidate for a long time. And he has nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Making a campaign stop there Sunday costs him nothing and can bring him a lot of votes.

It should be glaringly obvious by now that Romney is no McCain. If Mitt thinks it’s worth the time and money, I say go for it.

McCain was desperate and had exhausted all reasonable possibilities of an electoral college win. He was hoping against hope to find some traction elsewhere and gambled on PA.

That is not even remotely close to the situation we have today.
