The Straight Talk Express is announcing their intention to run for President. Again:
You never get a second chance to make a first impression unless you’re in politics. In this elongated campaign season, there are third and fourth chances, opportunities to “re-set” a campaign slow to get off the starting block.
This brings us to Sen. John McCain who today officially announces his presidential campaign — not to be confused with the announcement he made on “The Late Show with David Letterman” in March or his “Straight Talk Express” tour two weeks later.
In search of traction for his flagging campaign, McCain has delivered a series of speeches this month intended to showcase his serious credentials — a former prisoner of war in Vietnam who made himself a military and defense expert over 25 years in Congress.
New rule: You are only allowed to announce you are running for President twice every election season. If the voters are uninterested, take the hint.
