John McCain Watch: McCain Endorsed by Boston Globe and Des Moines Register

Republican presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. gestures during a new conference where he was endorsed by over 100 retired admirals and generals Saturday, Dec. 15, 2007, in Columbia, S.C.

Senator John McCain who had previously been endorsed by the New Hampshire Manchester Union Leader was today endorsed by the Boston Globe and Des Moines Register.

In a direct slap (or more like a knife in the back) at Mitt Romney – Romney was the Governor and is long time resident of Massachusetts, the Boston Globe played it safe with McCain and by its endorsement hopes to deny a New Hampshire victory to Romney.

The Des Moines Register disagrees with John McCain on a number of issues (including abortion rights) but denied the endorsement to Romney who has spent over $7 million in Iowa and who desperately needs a win in Iowa and New Hampshire to gather momentum to win later primary/caucus states.

Will these endorsements help John McCain?

Certainly.

But, McCain is short on campaign cash and organization. It is doubtful his campaign could parlay these endorsements into wins besides New Hamsphire and perhaps Michigan.

If anyone is a major beneficiary of these endorsements it is Rudy Giuliani. A muddled primary season with various winners in early states plays to his big state Super Duper Tuesday February 5th strategy.

Stay tuned…….

  1. WHY MICHAEL BLOOMBERG WILL RUN:

    IN A THREE WAY RACE BETWEEN HIM AND GUILLIANI AND HILLARY CLINTON HE WILL HAVE THE UPPER HAND.
    IF HE TAKES OBAMA AS HIS VICE PRESIDENT
    HE WILL TAKE THE BLACK VOTE AWAY FROM HILLARY
    HE WILL TAKE THE JEWSH VOTE AWAY FROM BOTH HILLARY AND GUILLIANI
    HE WILL WIN NEW YORK, AND HE WILL WIN FLORIDA
    HE WILL TAKE FUNDING AWAY FROM HILLARY AND GUILLIANI.
    HE WILL TAKE THE MEDIA COVERAGE AWAY FROM BOTH HILLARY AND GUILLIANI.
    IF HE GETS ONE THIRD OF THE DEM VOTE AND ONE THIRD OF THE REPUBLICAN VOTE AND GETS ALL OF THE INDEPENDENT VOTE(WHICH IS USUALLY ABOUT TEN TO FIFTEEN PERCENT OF THE TOTAL) HE WINS OUTRIGHT, AND PROBABLY EASILY!!!!
    NOTE HE WILL HAVE SOME 300 MILLION OF HIS OWN MONEY TO SPEND ADD TO THAT THE POWER OF THE CORPORATE WORLD.
    HE’S THE ONE AFTER ALL. WATCH OUT, HOUSTON WE GOT A PROBLEM…
