No!!! Not yet!!!

McCain's campaign manager, strategist leave
Both say they still support one-time leading GOP presidential candidate

WASHINGTON - John McCain's campaign manager and chief strategist are gone from their leadership roles, a major staff shake-up for the struggling Republican presidential candidate who is all but broke and trails in opinion polls.

In statements, Terry Nelson, a veteran of President Bush's successful 2004 re-election effort, said he resigned as campaign manager effective immediately and John Weaver said he stepped down from his post of chief strategist on Tuesday. But other officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid discussing private conversations, said Nelson was fired.

Two officials said Rick Davis, a longtime aide to McCain, will take over the campaign.

They heard Cliff's book was coming out and decided to bail rather than dealing with the blistering assessemnt of their candidate.

I still think that John McCain will be the John Kerry of this election. In disarray, broke, he will mount a comeback. Which, is a great thing for Democrats.

I guess it was a good idea for me to morph my book into an analysis of how much his campaign has sucked because he is who he is...

No, this is good news. He's being weakened, and Cliffie's book will be the final nail in the coffin. It's what will push him over the edge.

NPR had a good analysis today of McCain's failures.

Cliff deserves better. Maybe we should send McCain some contributions.

Nah, Cliff could start taking down the nominee, someone who matters.
McCain, you are out. Accept it. The first step to healing is accepting that you are powerless in this situation. The second is to turn yourself over to Joe Strummer and ask for forgiveness.
