McCain is an old school progressive. It is very sad to see him representing Arizona. We could do so much better. Once in, it is very hard to get them out.
He has lots of money, name recognition, and the support of the MSM. Maybe he will retire. Six months ago I saw him campaigning with Jeff Flake. I spoke to them and watched John McCain for over an hour, close up. He is vigorous, sharp, and showed no sign of dementia.
I am afraid that we cannot be sure that he will not run in 2016.
This is just my analysis prediction which is most often right but occasionally wrong (not lately) but I see MCain planning retiring after all these obvious attacks on us.
If he ran again he would put Palin in a rather suicidal spot this time to have to either defend or turn on him. If he runs and she doesn't turn on him then she will no longer be listened to by anyone.
This is much different then late 2010 when Rush told his listeners that Obama didnt care if he was re-elected. I immediately started posting here that Rush was FOS.
RE: ‘Once in, it is very hard to get them out.”
Unless of course it’s a real conservative Patriot, like Lt. Col. Allan West, that is.
One term wonder; go along; get along, or get out seems to be the general rule in politics.
Bachman kept her seat by the proberbial skin of her teeth, and I will be amazed if she survives the next combined attack of the Democan and Republicrat establishment.
She dared to question why all the MuzzBros in the administration, and that was probably the kiss of death for her political career.
Anyone who disses the Saudis or Muslims (like West had the audacity of doing) is probably toast.
