    And he may look better than Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Obi Wan McCain is their only hope.

    To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. Roger Ebert

      If McCain were nominated for the GOP ticket instead of Bush, that would have been a good thing.  Even in 2000, the GOP preferred the crackpot to the rational person.  So McCain became the crackpot that the GOP wanted, got a even wilder crackpot(it doesn't matter who you get as long a she a she and pretty, no one expect a woman to do anything) and lost the election.

      So yes, McCain is still a player, but as he has lost much of whatever independent and hispanic support he once had, he can no longer win an election.
