An Argument For McCain

It occured to me today that John McCain is a man able and willing to correct his own mistakes in short order. Back in the very early days of the presidential race, McCain's campaign was DOA. He was losing people from the campaign, his polling numbers were next to nil, it looked like the dream was over. So, he cleaned house, regrouped, and pulled off a stunning victory in the primaries starting with Florida. Then as Obamania took off, his campaign as the presumed nominee floundered once again. The North Carolina Republican Party started taking shots at Obama and McCain slapped them down for it. The conservative base reacted angrily and McCain learned his lesson. He brought new people into the campaign and began fighting back. The responses from the McCain camp to Democrat charges has been swift and powerful. It's barely out of Obama's mouth before you see a rebuttal video on YouTube. Granted, I'm biased, but it seems like McCain has shown a readiness to learn from mistakes and make quick corrections. Isn't that all you can really ask of a president?

Speaking of great videos, this one is fantastic.

Me, a McCain man. I never thought I'd see the day. He better not blow the VP pick.
