In Defense of John McCain


I keep hearing that Senator McCain “dissed” Sarah Palin yesterday on This Week. I didn’t read it that way. Yes, he owes her given how some of his staff treated her in the press. Maybe that’s exactly why he didn’t endorse her!

In all seriousness, I don’t think there was strategic thinking going into his Palin answer. As he said, the corpse is warm. (It would also be insane for anyone to endorse anyone for president four years out.) That and maybe he wants to leave the door open to endorse Obama in four?
