    I think the problem for him is deeper than the Journal seems to. Those who do know both Guiliani's stands, as well as McCain's, are trending towards Guiliani. These aren't liberals, they are however influencers of others, that do not follow politics all that much. McCain's negatives are highly personal, though as all character issues of politicians they tend to fall into the public arena. He is too full of himself by half, which is saying alot for someone of his depth and breath of experiences.

    McCain gets in trouble eveytime he opens his mouth. The liberal media is rooting for him, so watch the knives come out against Rudy

    I know it is very early but I am very happy Rudy is doing so well. The liberal media and the Dems are very scared about facing off against Rudy

    My liberal co-worker is always trying to tell me how Rudy is really a liberal. When I ask him if HE would vote for Rudy then, he rolls his eyes and changes the subject

    McCain is to worried about being liked by the liberal media. He does not have a prayer of getting the nomination

    That would be going too far. If left to the RNC, he would have it. They'll do what they can.

    Well Kathy let me ask you this question. Which Presidential candisate said the following:

    The first thing I will do as President will be to close GITMO

    If an older worker loses his high paying job and has to take a lower paying job, it should be the responsibility of the Federal Government to make up the difference

    Hint - it was NOT a Dem

    You may disagree, but McCain has 'earned' the nomination the traditional way. The RNC will support his bid, as long as possible. That's politics.
