    It's certainly been a very by-the-book campaign for someone who wasn't running quite as GOP-by-numbers effort back in the primaries (that would be Mitt Romney). Of course, it's equally possible that McCain's ambition to finally be President overwhelmed any previous moral scrupules or firmly-held principles—he may well have said, "F**k it, it worked for Bush". I'm inclined to believe it's a little of both. McCain was complicit in the takeover, but there are also indications in the various leaks and in his own statements/contradictions of party line that there are forces greater than he at play.
