McCain 2008?

I hope McCain runs for president in 2008, because even though I haven't supported him since he caved to Bush's smear tactics in 2000 I think that he can help pin an ugly identity on the GOP. Namely if they won't support him, and he's the only "maverick" willing to break ranks with neocons with such things as the anti-torture bill, then the supporters of "centrist" bullshit such as Bush's "uniter not a divider" election-year mantra will be exposed for the frauds they are.

Bush has been one of the most divisive presidents in recent years, and is an extremely stubborn man; this alone isn't a negative characteristic, but it is very contradictory with Bush's original platform (as was his declaration that our country shouldn't be involved in nation-building, period). McCain can't win because the conservatives see him as a maverick and the liberals see him as this - a weak panderer for attention.
