Senator John McCain, whom most analysts left for dead months ago (except for us!), has risen again. In addition to three big newspaper endorsements (the Des Moines Register, the New Hampshire Union Leader, and the Boston Globe), he got the backing today of Senator Joe Lieberman. Lieberman was a Democrat, until his party got hijacked by the George Soros-band of crazies, who ran him out on a rail. Although he still caucuses with the Democrats, Lieberman is the only original thinker among them in the Senate.
This is why his endorsement of McCain is so important: part of the mythical appeal of a Michael Bloomberg candidacy is because Bloomberg appears POST-PARTISAN. He was a lifelong Democrat who became a Republican to get elected mayor of New York, and is now an Independent. In this era of hyper-partisanship, a lot of people are rejecting the old party lines.
McCain has always been an independent guy. Sometimes too far off the reservation for some conservatives. And during this election cycle, he's often been dismissed as an old war-horse.
But if the "new brand" guys---Giuliani, Romney, Huckabee (?)---cancel each other out, there will be an opening, and the old war-horse may ride on through.
