Now it is official: Giuliani is dead meat .
So Iâ€™ll make another prediction: McCain will never make it to the top spot either. Heâ€™s got too much anti-GOP baggage and as much personal dirt on him as Giuliani does. In McCainâ€™s case it hasnâ€™t all come out yetâ€¦but it will.
A McCain nomination is unlikely for the most obvious of reasons. McCain is committed to George Bushâ€™s Iraq War policy and open borders immigration agenda, the two major factors that have contributed to the presidentâ€™s 30 percent approval rating.
Whatâ€™s McCain going to do—campaign on the platform of a sustained war and more immigration? Even against equally staunch proponents of unchecked immigration, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (who is still promising driverâ€™s licenses to illegal aliens), thatâ€™s an invitation for the Democrats to waltz into the White House.
At least Clinton and Obama have the war issue on their side.
Hereâ€™s something to watch for also. McCain is old! Notice in film clips from his campaign stops McCainâ€™s heavy reliance on railings, his wifeâ€™s arm and the presence of aides to help him up and down airplane stairs and on and off the podium.
