What If McCain Had Just Run Ads Like This?
Well, Palin still would have been a drag on the ticket, but filling people with “real” hope and positioning himself as the “real” change agent would have been so much more effective.

I think the biggest failing of McCain’s campaign is he never gave voters a reason to vote for him. Instead, he was all about how people should vote against Obama, and we saw how that failed strategy usher in a second Bush presidency in 2004.
