    I hope McBush thanks you, Fred, for running interference for him during the debates. Are you going to discuss payback now?

    Yeah....McCain is so done. He is such a lame duck opponent, he is going to be swallowed whole by Obama!

    I hope that McCain doesn't fall for this guy for VP. He needs to be looking for a VP with some serious economic skills. He already fills the "nice guy, hand-shaker, and back-slapper" position. Another one of those isn't needed. MS in SC
