Hedgehog Central discusses why John McCain is not loved.
A lot of what is said is on target, some of it isn't. In some cases the Republican "base" was wrong, particularly on immigration. They also grossly mishandled the entire Terri Schiavo situation at best, and their treatment of Harriet Miers was disgusting. On the Miers matter and the immigration issue, McCain was on the right side. But that won't make up for McCain-Feingold and his 2000 comments.
