A strategy for John McCain

Rich Lowry and Ramesh Ponnuru of National Review Online have one for him.
I especially found this part interesting:

"Several of the most salient issues in this election hold promise for Republicans: Tax increases are still unpopular; support for domestic oil drilling and nuclear power has shot up (for nuclear it is as high as 67 percent); the Iraq War, while remaining a negative, has steadily become less of one; and Republicans lead on fighting terrorism. McCain can, and must, win these debates."

But he has to talk about things like oil drilling and nuclear power, and do so with passion. He has yet to do so. There's still time, perhaps.

But do read the whole article.
