"We have no chance in 08 without McCain..."
We have no hope in 08 with McCain.
We sufferred a defeat today, but until Republicans realize why we lost, it will happen again, and the stakes will be much higher in two year.
First, Republicans need to come to grip that the war in Iraq is not popular, even among Republicans. You can blame the media, democrats, whoever, but the fact remains the same. If the conditions in Iraq are the same two years from now as they are today, kiss the White House goodbye folks.
