John Hawkins is a little tired of all the McCain frontrunner stories
and sets the record straight.
I agree with about 90% of what John writes here, but I disagree on the electability issue. McCain may not be "nominatable", but if he were to get the nomination, I absolutely believe he would be a formidable candidate in the general election with an excellent chance of crushing whomever the Democrats choose. Yes, the media coverage would not be as fawning as it is when they can use McCain's words to bash Bush. But there are a lot of independents who've made up their minds on the little admiral, and they are overwhelmingly in favor of him.
