The media is talking about policy, personality and talk radio, but they forget a key fact. Republicans have a history of giving second chances, in fact, they are notorious to nominating previous losers.

Nixon in 1968
Reagan in 1980
Bush in 1988
Dole in 1996

The Democrats are just he opposite. They almost always find a fresh face.

McGovern in 1972
Carter in 1976
Dukakis in 1988
Clinton in 1992
Kerry in 2004

I think that McCain's success has as much to do with name recognition and his second place finish in 2000. If McCain wins the nomination and loses the general election, Romney or Huckabee has a real shot in 2012.
