McCain gains political capital in electionsI have two words for you Republicans who think you need to latch on to a "sure bet" like McCain: BOB DOLE. He was another senator from a time long past with an impressive background as a war hero but who created absolutely no excitement among the party's base (I skipped that race out of disgust the day I went to vote in 1996 and concentrated on others).

Sen. John McCain emerged from yesterday's elections as one of Republicans' only winners as Democrats made solid gains and both parties turn an eye toward 2008. (link)
In McCain's case, I've made it clear in recent years that if I want to vote for a liberal (nut), I'll vote Democrat. Nominate McCain in 2008 and watch a whole mess of us stay home or do just that.
You've been warned.
