Poor John McCain. In just a few short weeks he's gone from mocking celebrity, to using it as a crutch to bring in crowds for his own events...and unfortunately for him, it seems to be going to the crutch's head. And now he has senior advisors piling on.
Earlier today, McCain's top policy advisor, Nancy Pfotenhauer, appeared on MSNBC and was asked about Chuck Hagel (R-NE) saying that Sarah Palin lacked the experience to be president. Pfotenhauer said:
So, I do believe that Senators tend to view other senate experience as the most important while the American people have shown in election after election that they view being governor of a state to be absolutely crucial. That's why whether it's Republicans or Democrats, I mean you go back through history and see why governors tend to do very, very well in presidential elections because the American people recognize running a state is probably the best training for running a country.
Was Ms. Pfotenhauer confused about who was at the top of the ticket? Or is she hoping the voters will forget?
