JP: I think you may be confusing driving the news cycle with winning the news cycle. If McCain announced that he’d been communing nightly with a talking pink unicorn, it would certainly be the top story of the day, but the narrative of the story would be “McCain has gone nuts.” What’s the narrative here? I could be wrong, but I think it’s less “McCain shows bold leadership” and more “McCain tries to get out of debating.” The Obama talking point that’s quoted in most of those stories, about how a president needs to be able to do more than one thing at once, strikes me as devastatingly effective.
