The Campaign

McCain Crawls to the Finish

The campaign’s final days are supposed to be its most glorious, as supporters turn out for one final push. For example: Obama’s crowd of 60,000 in Ohio yesterday. McCain, on the other hand, seems to be crawling toward the finish line. In Tampa today, McCain was greeted by 1,000 voters. A Fox News reporter (!) said the event looked as though it were set up for 10 times as many people. On the eve of the election in 2004, President Bush drew 15,000 voters in Tampa.
