I have no doubt that Kaus is correct that the Beltway will soon be talking this up, but it isn't going to happen. McCain won't run for the Democratic presidential nomination; he'd never get it and the party's left-liberal core would never have him (the press would, but they're not yet delegates to Democratic National Conventions).
McCain will run for president in 2004 as an Independent. He'll run as the "not crazy" Ross Perot. His biggest boosters will be the national press corps. And he will be a problem for the White House.
[The Democrats] have acknowledged that a president they still routinely describe as a moron, a tool of corporate interests, and an inarticulate boob is all but unbeatable by anyone in their ranks. This is a party, remember, that had to win back the Senate by a Republican defection, and now it wants to win back the White House the same way. The truth is, the only people actually excited about the current Democratic Party's domestic and foreign policy ideas are Republicans yearning for the excitement of conversion.
