McCain tries stealing Obama's post-partisan clothes
ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (Reuters) - Republican nominee John McCain said in an interview aired on Sunday he would bring Democrats into his Cabinet and administration as part of his attempt to change the political atmosphere in Washington.
"I don't know how many, but I can tell you, with all due respect to previous administrations, it is not going to be a single, 'Well, we have a Democrat now,'" McCain said on CBS' "Face the Nation."
"It's going to be the best people in America, the smartest people in America," he said in an interview taped on Saturday.
Well, you could have seen that coming a mile off. First, McCain tries to steal "change," and now he's trying to steal "post-partisan." What next, "unity"? The problem is that all these buzzwords are so vacuous that stealing them is easy.
Is there anything that McCain won't be able to steal?
"It's the economy, stupid."
People remember the Clinton years -- Democratic years -- as good times. And they are right to do so.
Maybe Obama will figure that out in time, and trump Palin's populism of resentment with genuine populism. Or maybe not.
