3. Again, it's not the sex thing
it's the lobbyist/corruption thing. And it provides a huge opening. Dems are taking it. See the recent interview with Howard Dean.

In my neck of the woods- and granted it's Vermont where people are very politically involved- people are definitely excited. I'm sure part of it is that we've never had the opportunity to participate in a primary that counts. But anecdotal evidence is just that, and Pew's Andrew Kohut and other analysts and polls are a far better gauge of dem voter opinion.

There's still time, and plenty of it, for the nominee to go after McCain. If it's not settled by March 6 we might have problems. We don't now, and both candidates are going after McCain. The bush/mccain connection is one avenue of attack but I'm in the minority here- I don't think it's the only one, or even the best one.

Also McCain may not be allowed to opt out of the public financing agreement he made. In that case he has virtually no money to compete until after the convention.

I think you're vastly overestimating how formidable McCain is. He has deep flaws and organiztional/finance problems, not to mention that dems have turned out in huge numbers this year and repukes have not been able to keep up.
