No Santa ad for him. Instead we have this. Now if McCain does make the comeback of the year (the decade?) he might point to this week as a turning point. One poll has him third in Iowa, he is getting traction in NH and the plaudits from the pundits continue to roll in. He has the benefit of playing strongly in early states where within days someone’s momentum can be halted or voters suddenly say “Isn’t there anyone else”? He has the benefit of less glaring policy faults than Huckabee (on foreign policy most clearly) and less baggage than Romney (on policy reversals and doubts about conviction). He is certainly working hard unlike well… you know who. If at the beginning of the primary season he seemed old news or grouchy he now might seem like a breath of fresh air from the religion war that has consumed a couple of weeks. He has significant policy differences with some in the base and he has a serious money problems but who can doubt that he has a shot at the nomination?
