[McCain] knows, in his gut, that he put somebody unqualified on the ballot. He knows that in his gut, and when this race is over that is something he will have to live with… He put somebody unqualified on that ballot and he put the country at risk, he knows that. – Matthew Dowd, the chief strategist for the Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign.
Something “he will have to live with”? I appreciate your candor, Mr. Dowd, but if John McCain wins the election, it’s something we’ll all have to live with.
Put the country at risk indeed.
