While Obama was throwing grandma under the bus and Hillary’s old appointment schedules show that she was in Washington for most of the Clinton administration, John McCain has been visiting Iraq for the eighth time, and stopping in Sderot.
Today he visited with UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown
The meeting with Brown, which McCain described as “excellent”, covered Iraq, the need for the international community to act together to deal with issues such as Darfur and Iran, the state of the world economy and particularly climate change.
Larry Kudlow notices that McCain has been surging in the polls:
According to the latest print from Rasmussen and Zogby, McCain now holds a 6 to 8 point lead against Hill-Bama.
McCain’s surge means that it is much less likely that Herbert Hoover-style high-tax and trade-protectionist proposals will come from Hill-Bama. This point will not be lost on the stock market.
Particularly coming from a candidate who doesn’t need to triangulate his qualifications for office.
