That's seems to be the suggestion of one Republican:
If I vote in this presidential race, I'll vote for John McCain, but in my considered opinion, he lost the election last night. Look, anything can happen between now and Election Day, but it became obvious to me at the conclusion of last night's dull event that this Obama McCain race is now a replay of Clinton-Dole. McCain is the crotchety old war hero and lion of the Senate who can't get any traction against the slick and appealing young Democrat. I don't know how any GOP candidate could fight against this crumbling economy, which is going to trigger an Obama landslide. But McCain's damnsure not doing any good.
Maybe the GOP should have gone with Huckabee after all.
I have to admit that back during the primaries, back when several websites had set up "compatibility testing" where you answered a series of questions and were then informed which of the candidates was the closest match to your own philosophy on Iraq, Taxes, Healthcare, etc., Huckabee was my closest match among the Republicans.
That doesn't suggest he would be doing better than McCain now, but Huckabee may well have siphoned off more votes from the left than McCain has.
