More bad news for Senator McCain. Making it formal on his own timetable seems the best move. I can’t wait to see the Q3 reports to idenitfy who gave money to the campaign after 7/11 –the list will no doubt be short, and full of interesting stories on “why.”
Is it possible that Senator McCain would put the effort on “hiatus,” and wait to see if the big three bleed each other to a dead heat, and then re-enter just before California and the other big states vote? That approach at least keeps him from having to spend money and time in Iowa and New Hampshire while explaining drop-offs in staff and contributions.
