Broder's Right

David Broder's column on Sunday, in which he dismissed the idea that John McCain would ever seek the Democratic presidential nomination or that Democrats would want McCain as their presidential nominee, was right on the money.

The McCain for President-as-a-Democrat movement got started in the pages of The Washington Monthly and The New Republic. You can find the links by clicking here. But it never made any kind of real world sense. In his column, Broder brought the whole crazed notion back down to earth and then buried it. He's still the best political reporter in America.
