Re: McCain

McCain is undoubtedly better as a counterpuncher and underdog. He will have plenty of opportunity for both in the general election. He also, I think, fell into coronation-mode and spent a lot of time collecting endorsements this week. He would be well advised this next week to spend some time in Wisconsin, which if he is fortunate will be in play in November, and start selling himself as much closer to the heartland than his Democratic opponent(s).
