Senator McCain came close to winning the GOP nominatin seven years ago, and I believe he also would have beaten Al Gore; probably with a wider margin than Bush enjoyed. (That would not have been bard since Bush barely won in the first place.)
The two issues that are sinking McCain’s campaign are immigration and the war in Iraq. I disagree with him on immigration, but I appreciate his leadership concerning the War on Terror. McCain is plain spoken, and that is a trait that I appreciate. I just don’t think there is anything McCain can do to salvage his bid for the GOP nomination.
I still haven’t decided on a candidate. That is mainly due to the dearth of solid options.
