Reason #3 why McCain could win in November

McCain most likely opponent in the general election, Barack Obama, is actually a hard core leftist. Recently, President Bush publically criticised Obama's intention to meet with dictators such as Castro:
“What's lost ... by embracing a tyrant who puts his people in prison because of their political beliefs?” he said. “What's lost is, it'll send the wrong message. It'll send a discouraging message to those who wonder whether America will continue to work for the freedom of prisoners. It'll give great status to those ... who have suppressed human rights and human dignity.
On the other hand, Barack Obama sees nothing wrong with this:
Obama responded in a statement: “The American people aren’t looking for more of a do-nothing Cuba policy that has failed to secure the release of dissidents, failed to bring democracy to the island, and failed to advance freedom for fifty years, because they know we need to pursue new opportunities to achieve liberty for the Cuban people. If I am the Democratic nominee, I will offer the clearest contrast to John McCain’s call for four more years of George Bush’s policies, because I want to fundamentally change our foreign policy to secure the American people and restore our standing in the world."
Let's look at the big picture. Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, H.W. Bush, and Clinton and (presumably) potential president McCain are all more or less agreed in policy with the current President Bush in regard to Cuba. Potential president Obama, on the other hand, more or less has only President Carter on his side. Yes, you read that right: Obama is proudly bearing the slogan "My foreign policy will be just like Carter's" and expecting to win the presidency with it. That alone is proof positive that Obama isn't qualified for the job.
