Me, July 2007:
It is kind of sad, really. I would never have voted for McCain, and I have found him to be a profile in cowardice these past few years- publicly sort of/kind of raising a scene about torture, then toeing the Bush line, etc., and like many others, I still have never recovered from McCain-Feingold, but at the same time it is kind of unsettling and painful too watch someone fall so far so fast.
But it is over. I can say with relative certainty that John McCain will never be President. At least not of the United States.
Couple more predictions like this, and I am ready to take over Friedman’s job!
