KERRY-McCAIN AGAIN….More speculation about a Kerry-McCain ticket, this time on the front page of the New York Times.

There’s not much more to say about this except that it’s notable that the article quotes only Democrats (aside from McCain himself and his campaign manager). But surely the only way McCain could be talked into this would be by hearing some encouragement from fellow Republicans, right? And so far there doesn’t seem to be any.

But who knows? This could be a chance for that near-extinct species, the moderate Republican, to make one last stand. There aren’t many around these days, but I wonder how McCain would feel if even a few of them privately told him that it would be good for the country if he joined a fusion ticket with Kerry?
