Poor McCain. He's stuck between a Bush and a hard place.
While Senator McCain enjoyed a landslide victory in the Republican primary, he is going to have an incredibly hard time convincing people to vote for him come November. The people who scream for change in Washington think he has aligned himself too closely to the sitting President. The people who support the sitting President say that McCain is too liberal and is not aligned closely enough to the sitting President. It looks like no matter what he does, people are ready to throw rocks at him.
