How McCain Could Win It
A marvelous piece of analysis by Ron Claiborne
"The reality is, as it's been for many, many months is that the [Republican] candidates all have weaknesses and at the end of the day John McCain is hoping that Republican voters take a deep breath, reassess the candidate and say it's not about a specific position on immigration or campaign finance reform, it's about strength and leadership and toughness in standing up in the war against terror," said Stuart Rothenberg of the Rothenberg Political Report.
He's pitching the endorsement of my favorite baseball player, Curt Schilling:
He spent most of the last week in New Hampshire and is now running a television commercial (on New England sports channels) featuring Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling pitching McCain as "a man of principle who sticks to his guns."
Probably the single-most iconic image in baseball in the last 50 years; only Fisk waving the ball fair compares.
