I Agree with Joe (Not the Plumber): McCain Aiming for 46%
I was ready to make a post about how McCain spent the night playing to his base. And if the CNN Republicans (Bill Bennett and Alex Castellanos) are indicative, McCain succeeded. McCain then alienated most other people.
But Joe Gandelman beat me to it.
So I’ll add this much. McCain was playing to hit 46%. He just wants to lose by less than 10 points right now. And the only way to do that is to rally the GOP base…again.
