Bottom Of The Ticket
McCain can't hold a crowd in Iowa:
McCain starts speaking 18 minutes into the rally. He begins by reminiscing about the State Fair. "I'm very grateful to be here. We intend to campaign hard across the state of Iowa again...I think we're going to be up late on Election Night, my friends, and we're going to need your help."
I look up, about five minutes into McCain's address and see a steady stream of people walking out of the rally. They just came to see Palin apparently.
The hard-core wingers want their tabula rasa gal at the top of the ticket. The problem for them is that she's divisive and her charm is fading. Markos is right - the intense focus on her made sense to drive up her negatives. Now that the financial ship has hit the iceberg, thoughts turn back to McCain, and his own party faithful don't want to hear from him.
This isn't ending the way the Disney movie would.
...wow, I missed this:
A Palin and McCain Administration?
