With less than a month until Election Day, even McCain's truest believers are losing faith. Bill Kristol continues today to use his New York Times as a strategic memo to the McCain campaign. This week's wisdom? Bench the advisers, pull the negative ads, quit the gimmicks, open the campaign to the media, even "volunteer a mild mea culpa about the extent to which the presidential race has degenerated into a shouting match." "He has nothing to lose," Kristol writes. "If the race continues over the next three weeks to be a conventional one, McCain is doomed."
