Mickey Kaus, yesterday:
Is McCain scared of campaigning without Palin? If they “split off,” as candidates usually do, the crowds will go with Palin, no? McCain will be left looking unexciting.
Leslie Bradshaw, at a McCain-Palin rally in Fairfax, VA today:
as soon as Palin finished speaking, the crowd left. this kind of concerns me — you only want to listen to half the ticket?
I know Team McCain is flying high right now, but riding the burst of enthusiasm generated by an exciting running mate is not a sustainable strategy. McCain had better come out strong when the debates start in a couple of weeks, lest the Palin bounce be remembered as the Palin bubble.
