Often when one is burned by one paramour, one turns back to a former flame, if only out of a sense of familiarity. Senator McCain and the (liberal) press were once very sweet on each other. In the beginning of the romance, he could do no wrong. He was their type of conservative (i.e., more liberal than his opponents) and running against the “Compassionate Conservative” foe. They again flirted with him when he was down and out during the early part of this very campaign season. But like an ingÃ©nue or starlet, once they put their gaze on a younger (much younger) and prettier suitor, the capricious ways of youth took wing.p>Obama, playing his part, wooed well and wisely. His rhetoric was sweet and soaring. (“He uses all the great quotations/Says the things I wish I could say/Whoa, but he’s has so many rehearsals br> Girl, to him it’s just another play,” to quote from the Tony Orlando and Dawn classic.) OBH forgot that if she is betrayed the kitten becomes a tiger. The youthful senator from Illinois is still ahead of Hillary, but only because when Clinton goes negative, her screeds remind even hardcore Democrats how unlikable she truly is. While she is the spurned party (once again), she would welcome back the press in a heartbeat. (Sensing a habit with Ms. Clinton?) /p> p>Since the Wizard has been revealed, can we ignore the man behind the curtain? Will the press leave him on the way to the alter and return the loving (and quickly moving to the soft center) McCain or can they live with a (badly tarnished) tin man? br> — Ira M.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
