* Dowd (NYT): McCain – anything to win

Posted by Lew Weinstein on October 13, 2008

Maureen Dowd writes in the NYT (10/7/08) …

  • John McCain has long been torn between wanting to succeed and serving a higher cause.
  • Right now, the drive to succeed is trumping any loftier aspirations.
    • He cynically picked a running mate with less care than theater directors give to picking a leading actor’s understudy.
    • And he has been running a seamy campaign
  • Campaigning last weekend, Palin cast their Democratic rival as “someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.”
  • The woman is sounding more Cheney than Cheney.
  • The new McCain TV ad, “Dangerous,” calls Obama “dishonorable,” “dangerous” and “too risky for America.”
