A Fading Brand
I have a feeling, folks, that once this election is history, Senator McCain is going to have some major regrets about this campaign he's been waging. I mean, think about it. This is a fellow who, once upon a time, was probably the most respected politician in the country - on both sides of the aisle. Hell, if anything, he was probably more respected/popular amongst the Democrats in Congress. And now it's all going to be gone, all of it - all because of this mean-spirited/pandering campaign that he/his supporters have waged. I don't know. I just find it all kind of sad.............................................Of course, what's even more sad is that this guy is a 72 year-old cancer survivor who probably won't have a lot of time to resurrect himself (ala, say, Barry Goldwater did after his defeat - not to say that Goldwater ever went this negative, mind you). I mean, he does seem like the type of guy (a person with a conscience, in other words) that would want to, doesn't he? I'm thinking he is.
