Take that, Humboldtblue, this is the thin end of the wedge. McCain has decided to try desperately to go for moderates. That's going to piss the hell of the loons who have the least reason to turn out and trust him to be another Bush. But I don't think its going to convince anyone else. Why, because its a totally "when did you stop beating your wife" situation for him. To explain just how moderate he is he's going to have to keep pointing out how many former supporters he's rejected. That's going to go over like a lead baloon.
