Carolina Dreamin’

CHARLESTON, S.C. — My Internet connection has been spotty, but the word on the street is remarkably similar to the polls suggesting a McCain-Huckabee race with Mitt Romey and Fred Thompson looking for a respectable finish. John McCain held a large, spirited rally aboard on the deck of a decommissioned aircraft carrier in the Port of Charleston. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) made the case that McCain was uniquely qualified to lead the troops to victory.

“Who is ready to lead them on day one?” he asked. The crowd’s response: “John McCain!” The call and response continued, culminating in “Who’s going to lead [our troops] to victory?” “John McCain!”

Elsewhere in Charleston this evening, there was a Veterans for Paul Ron Paul for a Stronger America rally. I missed the candidate’s speech but spoke to some of his supporters. The Paulites are undiminished in their enthusiasm, undeterred by their fifth place showing in New Hampshire, and encouraged by their fourth place showing in Michigan. To the extent that they are in the hunt in South Carolina, they are hoping to place ahead of Rudy Giuliani for the third time.
