Hello Maverick

February 12, 2008 - Steve Murch
Hey, did you hear? John McCain is a maverick.

If there is one thing that is annoying about the national media (I know, you’re thinking I only have one?) it’s that no one seems to have a mind of their own or a thought of their own. How many times have you heard a national reporter say “John McCain is a maverick.” And they all repeat it.

We get it. McCain isn’t a march-in-line kind of guy when it comes to the Republicans. I wonder who the first reporter was who said McCain is a maverick because I hope he or she regrets the comment now.

Whether McCain is a maverick or not, I have a hard time believing Ann Coulter will vote for a Democrat, as she has stated would happen if McCain is the GOP nominee. Nor can I see Rush Limbaugh crossing party lines. While both would probably receive a windfall of riches in terms of things to complain about with a Democrat in the office, I have serious reservations either would vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

The general concensus is that Clinton will need to win Texas and Ohio if she has a chance to win the Dems nomination. If she doesn’t, does she stay in until Obama surpasses the delegate number needed to wrap up the nomination similar to what Huckabee is doing with the Republicans?

I believe both parties need someone to stay in the race until the delegate count is wrapped up. Why? Because the public doesn’t need the nastiness that is sure to follow when it’s down to one candidate in each party. If you thought Swift Boat and it’s response got ugly, wait until this year.

We will have either an African-American or woman running against a senior citizen (make that an older maverick). The fireworks are about to begin.
