It’s the Economy, Stupid

No, it’s not. It’s not the economy. It’s not the endless war in Iraq, either. It’s not foreign policy or national security. It’s not Roe v. Wade, or schools, or crumbling infrastructure, or the environment. Jeebus, it’s not even tax-and-spend liberalism, for god’s sake. What is it, then?

Rick Davis, campaign manager for John McCain‘s presidential bid, insisted that the presidential race will be decided more over personalities than issues during an interview with Post editors this morning.

“This election is not about issues,” said Davis. “This election is about a composite view of what people take away from these candidates.”

Davis added that issues will no doubt play a major role in the decisions undecided voters will make but that they won’t ultimately be conclusive. He added that the campaign has “ultimate faith” in the idea that the more voters get to know McCain and Barack Obama, the better the Republican nominee will do.

Oh, goodie! It’s about personality! It’s a popularity contest! That means McCain has it made, because after the last eight years, Republicans are really well-liked!

Ooops. Wait a minute…
