In an interview on World News Tonight this evening, Charlie Gibson sat down with John McCain for a post-Obamamania interview.
One question, and its answer, stuck with us: Gibson asked McCain, “Are you the underdog?” McCain said yes.

Just because he is losing does not mean he is the underdog. McSame is the establishment candidate. By definition of what it means to be the establishment candidate, he is not and cannot be an underdog.
He’s behind for a hundred reasons, many of which stem from the perception that a McSame presidency would be four more years of Bush. He’s not behind because he is an underdog.
What I don’t understand is why he said he would like to be president for only 4 years.
For what reason would someone say such a thing? What’s the underlying reason?
He’s the underdog that nobody is rooting for.
He’s the underdog because he and his party suck (and not in a good way).
He’s like “Underdog:The Movie”.
Forty years late and doomed for massive failure.
“What I donâ€™t understand is why he said he would like to be president for only 4 years.”
To get more votes maybe from people who are too afraid of the damage he could inflict if he stays for more than 4 years, but who want to vote for him because the democratic primaries have fueled such hate, anger and division. Hillary Clinton has a chance here to show her ability to unite the party, regardless of whether she is Obama’s VP choice. Can she convert those Clintonites who now are sworn Obama enemies and would betray her values just to stick it to the Dems?
Or maybe he’s afraid that more than 4 years could destroy his health. Every president has come out of the White House having aged 3 years in appearance for every year of service. It’s a very stressful job. He is an old man, after all.
Very clever guy!
New Orleans and McCain!
Is this guy cuckoo or what?
It’s ironic how Clinton is now the “uniter.” I mean this is a name that hasn’t been known for uniting anyone, but now, she is. For the record, I don’t dislike Clinton. I would have been fine with her or Obama or Edwards. I just think the level of delusion amongst supporters is over the top. The name Clinton isn’t known for unity in this country. You are just using the catch phrase of the moment. For record, she doesn’t want the job of VP so why are you still arguing for it? Maybe she will change her mind. Maybe Obama will. But, not because she’s a uniter.
McShame is the under taker.
He’s not the underdog, he’s just a dog of a candidate.
Nah, he’s not the undertaker. Barack Obama is.
McCain LOVES to fight as if he were the underdog. It’s what he does, and it’s how he brought his campaigns back from the dead in 2000 and this year. The fact is, he has been a powerful senator and before that a congressman longer than many of us have been alive, his father, and his grandfather were both Admirals, and his wife earns an estimated 8 million a year to add to the over 150million she already has. Trust me, he may be polling down, but this guy is no underdog. He was born on third base and is acting like he hit a triple.
McCain was never more than a possable senator who never said or did anything remotely memorable. If he odr his family make any money that’s a sign of nothing more tthan that he makes money like any and all neocon crooks. Are you dense, that has no relation to brains. CLEARLY.
Screw your head on ston
How do dense plants like you ever find your way here. Oh! you’re planted!
Trouble with all you repiggies is that Craz Coulter or Fat boy Limbaugh convinced you that lots of money had something to do with brains. Even movie fans know that it’s the stupid crooks who get away with the money because they can’t afford to have values. That’s what an underdog is swifty.
He clearly is the underdog and would be so against any Democrat this year.
Ironically he was equally clearly the underdog in the Republican primary a year ago, so he could pull it out.
