Is McCain the Only One Who Can Beat Obama?

That’s what some believe.. I’m inclined to agree. Not only can McCain wrest away some independents but he (unlike any other Republican or even Democratic candidate) can simultaneously offer comprehensive experience while standing for change.

Of course, assuming he gets the nomination – and that’s still a big assumption – McCain will have to deftly communicate his support for the Iraq war in a way that makes sense to a nation fatigued by the conflict. He will also have to choose a socially conservative vice president and find a way to speak to the so-called values voter in a way that brings out enough of the base without alienating independents. None of this would be easy, but McCain appears to be the most equipped Republican to execute such an acrobatic political maneuver.
