How McCain Can Win

In two words: He can't.

McCain is losing because his campaign has been all over the damn place, which undercuts his core value proposition ("You'll always know where I stand, my friends.") and scares voters in a time of crisis. Even if he were to pick one of his many tracks and stick with it, 9 days is far too short a stretch of time to change the impression McCain has spent the last 6 months creating in the minds of voters.

He can play the woulda, coulda, shoulda game, but unless he's got a time machine, he's has no good options left.

Yeah, but please don't jinx it! We still have to hope and to work for it. Are you going to the Obama rally tonight/tomorrow?
