…If you happen to be rich, white, male, Republican and Christian (evangelical or Mormon). For all the rest of us, we’ll have to look elsewhere.
The NY Times published The Buzz About a McCain-Romney Ticket yesterday and I’ve got to say it’s passing strange to me. If this is the Republican Party’s idea of a dream ticket then they’re likely to be trailing far behind on Election Day.
If McCain’s goal is to shore up the right wing of the Party then perhaps Romney brings something to the table. But I’d think that to win the general election McCain has to worry about a lot more than his right wing. Doesn’t he have to win some moderates, independents, and even a few Democrats? I don’t see how McCain can do that on his own. He’s lost the maverick, independent street cred he’d built up in 2000 when he ran the Straight Talk Express. And Romney’s sure not going to help on that score.
