John McCain Announces His Losing Bid For President On David Letterman Tonight

Senator John "Weathervane" McCain announces his losing bid for president on David Letterman's show tonight. Unfortunately his window for becoming president long since passed him by. McCain had two good shots at higher office already pass him by. In 2000, if only he could have run better in the South Carolina primary and not into intense opposition by the religious right, was probably his best chance. In 2004, he could have accepted an offer by John Kerry to form a bipartisan ticket of two military veterans, but allowed this opportunity to also slide by.

Now McCain is almost too old to be elected, and has harvested a bad image as having opinions that blow in the wind like a "weathervane". He is beginning to quickly lose strength against former New York Mayor, Rudolph Giuliani in the polls.

A major portion of politics is timing, which is mostly why Senator Barack Obama is running now, and not 4 or 8 years from now. McCain, the former straight talking senator from Arizona, who once proved some flexible positions something like Barry Goldwater, his mentor, has allowed too many opportunities to pass him by. Now. the voters will likely pass him by as well, and his dream to be president will never be realized.
