My husband and I were discussing this this morning. When McCain is feeling unsure about his support, he "shakes things up" by surprising the public.
He does something that gets the attention of the people on him and talking about him. These "tricks" will only take him so far, though. If he does
win the election because of these "stunts", they won't help him after the election. It's almost like his campaign is taking cues from popular
Reality Shows to gain and keep the public interest.
Sadly, I'm concerned it just may work.
Once he's president, his poll numbers aren't going to matter, though. That's when the real work is going to start. And manipulating the public
isn't going to help run the country. I sincerely hope he doesn't plan to use this strategy of "throw them off guard with a shocker" in his
I prefer a calm, predictable, stable leader. Not someone who throws a wrench in the works like a defibrillator to get the campaign's heartbeat going
With McCain's unexpected VP pick, delaying the convention, saying he'd fire the head of the FEC, and now suspending his campaign (?) and trying to
postpone the debate... I don't feel very sure about this man at all... One week, the economy is strong, next week, he has to drop everything to
