There’s something weird about McCain, Jennifer — an affect problem that was evident in in 2000 and now. Every time he wins something, he goes slack and makes a mistake. After winning New Hampshire in 2000, he went to South Carolina and spent two weeks whining about the mean things the Bush campaign was doing — effectively blowing his own positive message. He did it last week by wasting time campaigning in Massachusetts, which was Mitt Romney’s state, and he may have done it in this past week by taking it easy in Virginia instead of fighting to win by a large margin.
