Slouching Toward McCain?

I have to say that I've never really much liked always disliked John McCain personally and politically. However, if he keeps saying this sort of thing, I'm much more likely to give him more sympathetic consideration:

I believe the transcendent issue of the primary, and the general [election], will be who is best equipped to fight this new challenge from radical Islamic extremism. I don't need any on-the-job training. I don't need time to develop. I'll hit the ground running. I may not be the president for all times, but I'm the president for these times.

I've never been a single issue voter, but I think 2008 may prove the exception to that rule. McCain is more than right about what the issue is, and I can't help but feel he may be right about being the guy to take it on as well.

Yips! to John Hood over in the Corner.

He's my backup if Romney falters. Nanny fever!

I haven't ruled out any of the "Big Three" yet.

But then, the CT primary is still 313 days away...

McCain has exceeded his expiration date. I like what he says but, he is too old to run the country. Sorry...

Don't care for BCRA (for the simple reason, five Justices aside, it is unconstitutional) but I think he'd be the best at selling the war -- no one can accuse him of chickenhawkness.
