    I disagree, McCain got the Nod in 2008 due to centrist/moderates. The whole primary system is goofed atm any hoots.

    Will he actually be the reasonable McCain or the weird I want to be president guy?

    Another entrenched, boring, corrupt incumbent wins again. It makes me sad.

    Unfortunately, the man running against McCain was bat **** crazy. Where in the hell are the great thinkers in the GOP when you need them. Whatever happened to the William F. Buckleys of the party? They have gone the way of the dodo bird, and have been replaced by nutters.

    Hopefully the former.... his biggest mistake, however, was plucking Gov. Sarah Palin from obscurity in Alaska

    You should vote Democrat Dan, the GOP's just too crazy for you. Too extreme, no good smart candidates or thinkers. It's all over for the GOP. Or maybe you could vote Libertarian, anything but vote GOP. They just aren't good enough for you. Maybe they'll see the light and elect nothing but Arlen Specter and Olympia Snowe type candidates in 2012! Then you could vote for them again!

    That was his best moment in 2008, his worst was rushing back to DC and trying to help broker a Big Gov't solution. That's what killed him.

    If you were a great thinker, would you like to get into the cesspool of D.C. politics in 2010?
