It wouldn't have mattered who got the republican nomination this election!
I can not think of anyone who could have convinced the majority of Americans to put another one in the White House. McCain will lose.

Do you really think McCain can carry Florida, California, Illinois, New York, Ohio, Texas, any of New England, and a half dozen other smaller states?
The Primaries indicated that nearly twice as many democrats voted as did republicans. Why would that change?

The republicans were self destructed by approving the right wingers "we have got all the right answers," people. Reaganites! (He wasn't that bad a guy---just didn't know how much money he had to spend and let Ollie North + destroy him).

The true republicans in this country aren't a bad party, but they were high-jacked by people of "government by men rather than of laws!"

They put way too much emphasis on a bad war, immigration, and religion in politics!

Answers for you right here
McCain is the best possible candidate still running for office.
Huckabee is a far second place but he's the obvious southern, God fearing, tax reforming, younger than McCain VP.

Obama/and any VP beats McCain/Huckabee big time.
Hillary/Obama beats them by a slight margin.
Hillary/Breck Girl loses to McCain/Huckabee.

McCain, the only worthy Republican still going who's worthy of nomination (there was one who was definitely worthy, unfortunately most people below Md. couldn't correctly spell or pronounce the Man's name) will be destroyed if Huckabee is his running mate. Why won't this guy, who never should have gotten this far, just go away and never come back? It is baffling to most clear thinking people in this country. Hillary and/or Obama in any combination will win it even though McCain would be far better and that is only b/c "W" (does that represent "Worst", has ruined things for the real Republicans for a long time to come.

Hi McG. We've never had the pleasure of corresponding. I've been almost speechless watching the GOP run this presidential campaign. I would agree that McCain is arguably the most capable Republican running. I use to think Huckabee was until he made the comment about flying the Confederate flag in SC, changing the constitution to fit the Bible, and his dogged support for abolishing the IRS (requiring the creation of a whole other bureaucracy to calculate every Americans' prebate Sad ).

What has made me speechless is how the GOP has showed no respect for a man who has been elected over and over again as a Republican; their number two candidate in 2000; a bonafide war hero who has been called a traitor ONLY by Republicans Sad

He went to PNAC as the absolute GOP presidential candidate and was BOOED! I was speechless. I couldn't believe the talking heads hacking away at his credibility before he was even introduced to speak; amazing. And even more amazing is they were willing to support Mitt Romney who can't even be honest about hunting or marching with Ralph Abernathy; a man who changed his core beliefs, conveniently, in his 50s.

The nation is watching the GOP, because this is an incredibly important election. Most people feel our economy is reeling, our reputation is bruised, and we don't need open ended commitments to Iraq. I don't know how any GOP candidate other than Ron Paul could win the votes of Americans who want to see the light at the end of the Iraq tunnel. I feel that, even though us liberals respect John McCain, we are not likely to vote for a man comfortable with staying in Iraq for "a hundred years." I actually hate to see the GOP shooting itself in the foot like this because it will lead to more bitter infighting in the future. If we all took a step back we would beg for candidates that said "I will work across the aisle to get things done."
