Paul Krugman's statement about McCain below is true. He's not in charge of his own campaign. He's turned himself over to handlers and more so, funders. He's no Teddy Roosevelt as he once thought of himself. He's throwing the progressivism of T.R. out the window. If he were to win, would anyone let him claim it again? Is he faking out the neocons just to win? Either way, it stinks.
