I believe so. First, why did Bob Dole lose to Clinton in '96? Answer that one for better clarification onto why McCain may lose to Obama. Secondly, I believe John McCain and his campaign have lots of similarities to Dole and Dole's campaign. Here they are: 1.Both were/are considered "oldest" nominee to run 2.Both were decorated war heroes 3.Both republicans in unfavorable times 4.Both have those bad tempers 5.They are both running against a young perceived "inexperienced" and "change" candidates ie. McCain/Obama - Dole/Clinton. And usually the general public loves the underdog like Obama and like Clinton. What are the thoughts?
