Time Ignores the Elephant in the Room
A poll in this week's Time magazine -- the one with Hillary on the cover -- has McCain eeking out a 2-point win. The folks at Time even threw in a couple of other has-beens -- John Kerry and Al Gore -- and McCain beat them by healthier 10 and 9 points margins respectively.
Notice who's missing from the poll. Is Time saying the outcome of the Hillary-centric Democratic race is less certain than the Republican race?
But Time does bother to poll Rudy's favorability, and it comes up at 64 percent vs. 56 percent for McCain.
So, Time knows who the strongest Republican is -- so they pick the weaker of the two to run against Hillary, and use the piece to claim unstoppable Hillary momentum.
Once people start figuring out that McCain isn't the strongest candidate we can run against her, his insider shell game starts falling apart.
