Bush Machine Helping McCain

Jeff Fuller has an interesting post that touches on the matter. It wouldn't surprise me at all if this type of a deal was struck. Remember, Newsweek reported that Sen. McCain was offered the vice-presidency by Sen. Kerry. Sen. McCain naturally turned him down flat. Being the vice-president to Sen. Kerry would have effectively ended his career. He would be too old by the time 2012 rolls around, and even if he weren't, neither party would ever nominate him. His only path to the presidency would be Kerry's death (and then not even for a full term). Not to mention that he probably realized that Sen. Kerry is a bozo who had no business being the president.

But a person as deep in intrigues as Sen. McCain is very capable of seeing how he could use the offer to his advantage. All he would have had to do was let the White House think he was considering it and he'd have them on their knees. President Bush would have lost to a unity ticket, of this I'm sure. Put in that position, it's easily conceivable that a deal was made.
