I have a creeping fear that in 2008 I may find myself in the utterly horrifying position of supporting McCain for president. I find McCain’s signature domestic project of circumscribing political speech through campaign finance “reform” to be vicerally repugnant and downright un-American. On the other hand, there are two key qualities that I’m looking for in a Republican nominee in 2008: a serious commitment to a muscular foreign policy with political change in the Middle East as its lynchpin, and the ability to win the general election. On both counts, McCain threatens to tower over the GOP field. What a terrifying thought.
