McCain got beaten because his party wanted ONLY GWB to win, instead of being
open to whichever candidates were running to select the best man. When your
own party hobbles your efforts at organization and fundraising, it's awful hard
I was talking to one Republican candidate here in California, and he mentioned
that the Republican party was REQUIRING of all its incumbents and new
candidates that they sign a form pledging their support to GBW -- this DURING
the primaries, when McCain was still strongly in the running -- and if they did
NOT sign the endorsement, the money for their various races would be withheld.
Go ahead...tell me that's a level playing field.
