I don't get it...

John McCain's campaign is floundering and apparently this is all the responsibility of his campaign managers. The assumption seems to be that there is no question about Senator McCain's appeal to the American people. Public approval for the Senator is out there, if these people would just do their job and access it.

I assume that these people are above average in intelligence, or they wouldn't have secured the job. I imagine that the sole focus of their attention -- as it is their job -- is to secure and expand the public's approval of Senator McCain. I presume that they have been doing everything in their power to accomplish this goal...

It seems to me that the one thing that might make them unsuccessful is that Senator McCain's appeal to the American people is not so widespread as was hoped. Uh....Maybe people just don't want him to be president...

I don't think that is the campaign manager's fault -- or any one's "fault" for that matter. I thought campaigns were about learning about the candidates and making choices (There is some rejection implied there, folks!) But apparently it is assumed that if you run for president, it is only your support staff that can cost you the election...not your convictions, your character, your experience, your actions...

Okay...maybe I do get it...but I really don't like it!
