here's my half baked idea for the evening... I'm sure I'll wake up tomorrow and either disagree or not even understand what I was trying to say...

thought: mccain being the republican nominee would be advantageous for an Obama candidacy. Because mccain doesn't like torture, doesn't want to "double gitmo," doesn't hate Mexicans or fags, etc., Obama can keep it about political ideology rather than have to point out what a vile person his opponent is (after all, calling his opponent out for being a scumbag could potentially cut against his own 'politics of hope' message). by instead having a more academic debate about whether our country should generally head in a more liberal or conservative direction, and what that really means, obama will be fighting on his own turf.
