What I had to say six months ago in this post:
Senator McCain, we thank you for your service, but you are not going to be President of the United States. Everyone knows it but you. Please commence fading from public view at once. Who knows? If you give it a year or two, maybe you can pull off that “elder statesman” crap.
If McCain does get the nomination, he’ll still have a formidable challenge, so my statement may yet play out. But, thanks partially to horrendous campaign mismanagement by at least two of his competitors, he’s certainly a long way from politically irrelevant headed into Super Tuesday.
Good thing I don’t get paid to pick ’em, eh?
