doesn't make you sad that he lost. . .

Over the last three months, Mr. Obama has quietly consulted Mr. McCain about many of the new administration's potential nominees to top national security jobs and about other issues — in one case relaying back a contender's answers to questions Mr. McCain had suggested.

Mr. McCain, meanwhile, has told colleagues "that many of these appointments he would have made himself," said Senator Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican and a close McCain friend.

And maybe that is why he lost.

Boy, ain't it the truth! We've got McCain anyway. At least this way, the Repubs. won't have any blame.

I am disappointed that we didn't get the "spirited debate" that the candidates always say they want. In the Republican primaries, where a plurality takes the whole pile of chips, we had McCain, who most everyone didn't want, vs. a bunch of other guys who were more true to conservative ideals but who divided the majority among themselves. I would have liked to have heard Romney or Giuliani or Fred on the stump, highlighting the differences between left and right. McCain never could define himself or define the choice because he has no governing philosophy. I hope we can another chance.
