McCain Clinches Republican Primary

Congratulations goes to BlogTalkRadio guest John McCain as he seals the GOP presidential bid.

mccainMcCain’s campaign went through some rough times last year and many counted him out. But he always found a voice on BlogTalkRadio. After all, that’s why we’re here.

During his three visits to BlogTalkRadio, Senator McCain had this to say:

  • May 29, 2007 – McCain: “We…unfortunately, pay way too much attention and I plead guilty first, pay too much attention to a lot of the polls; a lot of them are conflicting. And as you know polls are less, much less accurate than they use to be due to the advent of the cell phone”
  • July 19, 2007 – McCain: “We’re gonna spend a lot of time in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina doing what I do best, and that’s the town hall meetings, face to face, unfiltered communications with people, that’s the way I won back in 2000…I can convince people that I’m the one that’s qualified, I’m the one that’s experienced, and I’m the one that’s prepared to meet this great challenge we describe…”
  • October 15, 2007 – McCain: “We just came back from New Hampshire last night…I’ve been in this business long enough to detect enthusiasm. And the town meetings have been great…we’re in good shape and there is a lot of interesting things happening as people start to really begin to focus on this race.”

Reviewing these quotes today gives one a different perspective on how political races are won and how experience and determination can drive a person to victory over time. Congratulations, Senator McCain, we look forward to having you and your campaign back on BlogTalkRadio.
