I thought this was his last chance to speak to the American public and try and reverse his campaign meltdown. I thought he did a pretty poor job and just regurgitated the talking points that have not been working. Brokaw asked some pretty tough questions and McCain avoided answering most of them. I thought he had a real opportunity to score some points with undecided voters but he chose to not anger the base. Examples Refused to comment on Limbaugh's reaction to Powell endorsement. He could have used this as an opportunity to spank Limbaugh and rise above the fray but he didn't. Could have used the question on Palin's $150,000 wardrobe to say the party made a mistake and this is the kind of waste I am campaigning against, especially given the dire economic times we are in.
