McCain: I’m surprised Obama’s not blowing me out

Just give him time. Heh. No, this is actually just a shrewd bit of expectations management, reminding the GOP faithful not to panic when Obama bounces out to an eight- or ten-point lead. We’re still well within striking distance. Had we nominated anyone else, we wouldn’t have been.

It’s also a reminder, of course, that not all of Maverick’s problems are Maverick’s problems. If you know what I mean, and I think you do. Exit quotation: “I have every confidence that if Senator Obama goes to Iraq, meets with General Petraeus, and the sergeant majors and the captains and the colonels and the corporals, that he will know that this strategy is succeeding and he would modify, would change his position, and support what’s being done over there, and bring us home, but bring us home with honor and victory, not defeat.”
