If so, will the Democrats dust off the right-wing garbage used to swiftboat him? I think McCain is the frontrunner among Republicans, and is the best of a sorry lot. Some say, he might even choose Lieberman as his VP. That would be very interesting, but unlikely, especially since McCain has problems within his own party. Regardless, McCain would be tough, but I think the anti-McCain people on the Republican right and his age would play against him. Also, his enthusiastic support for the war would not help him with independents.
