Beware of John McCain

Ryan Sager on the results of the latest Zogby poll:

* Mr. McCain, despite his drop in this Zogby poll, still strikes me as the candidate with the most solid support — as in, his voters are the ones least likely to abandon their candidate at the drop of a hat.

* Mr. Giuliani, despite his strength in the polls, should worry significantly about Mr. Thompson. The former Tennessee senator and “Law & Order” DA has the tough-guy image that has drawn people to Mr. Giuliani, yet he comes without a lot of the personal and social-issues baggage.

I agree with Ryan about McCain’s solid support. The truth is that anyone that likes McCain at this point knows a lot about him, as opposed to many of the social conservatives who love America’s Mayor without knowing more than that he is a strong leader who didn’t crumble with the twin towers. I remain terrified that Giuliani’s support plummets at some point (likely right around the time the NRA and pro-life groups start running their ads against him) and we are left with John McCain as the Republican candidate. And this, my friends, is why a Fred Thompson candidate is necessary.

I want a lot of choices so I am happy that Thompson could be a candidate. Where are the Governors? Pawlenty, the Governor of Minnesota, is campaigning for McCain in the Midwest. So it looks as if he is aiming for McCain’s Vice President.
We need more Governors in the race.

Darlin’, everytime you panic that McCain might seriously become the GOP nominee, I will be here to soothe your pain and remind you that he won’t win the nomination.

Let’s see, Ed Cox who? The one to help McCain?
The NY Conservative Party had already given Mayor John Spencer two dozen County Chairs of support (Via CP Leader Jim Kelly push) while Ed Cox had NO support.
Cox proved himself weak kneed when Gov. Pataki picked Pirro and left the race instead staying in the ring, fighting for the US Senate like Spencer did. Cox could not run his own race let alone McCain’s Race.
