McCain's nomination reminds me of Bob Dole in 1996, Algore in 2000, and John Kerry in 2004. Sacraficial lambs all of them. But something weird and unexpected happened....Hillary Clinton did not get the nomination for the Democrats...Obama got it, so McCain's sacraficial lamb status got upgraded real quick, and Republicans were not ready for it. That is where Sarah Palin comes in....Republicans realized we actually have a chance so we better rev up the base.
