McCain may endorse former rival Romney, report says
Edited on Wed Dec-07-11 08:31 PM by brooklynite

Former Republican nominee for president John McCain is backing away from his pledge not to endorse any of candidates vying to unseat the man who defeated him in 2008, President Obama.

The Hill newspaper reports that McCain said he "might" endorse one of the seven Republican White House hopefuls in "several months." Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney would likely be the beneficiary, the newspaper said, citing "sources familiar with his thinking."

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich would almost certainly not get a formal backing from the Arizona senator, the newspaper said, noting that McCain and many of Gingrich's former colleagues on Capitol Hill are increasingly fearful the bombastic mastermind of the 1994 Republican revolution might become the party's nominee for president in 2012.

2. If McCain does this
It will be the kiss of death for Mitt, as many people blame John for losing to Obama.

5. It's been obvious from the beginning that the Rethug establishment wants Romney, but
the Rethug voters don't.

And this is why God made voting machines.
