Obama's BIGGEST GIFT to John McCain

Its a hot topic among political fanatics in Arizona. It was also discussed by Christopher Orr of the New Republic.
Pres.-Elect Barack Obama just gave Sen. John Mccain two gifts in the last two weeks. One of the gifts was a very big one.
First, Obama SAVED McCain's close friend, Joe Lieberman. Obama's message to the Senate Democratic of " I forgive Joe, lets move on" was big. It really pretty much saved Joe's neck. I'm sure McCain is very happy to see his dear friend Joe Lieberman escape this one.
Second, a huge gift for John Mccain.
President-Elect Obama just took out the one person who could have very likely ( in fact heavily favored) defeated John McCain in Arizona in 2010.
I am pretty sure the minute Governor Napolitano's pick was announced by the media, the entire John McCain Arizona team
had the biggest smile of the day.
Two head to head polls taken within the last 12 months showed Democrat Napolitano beating Mccain by a landslide double digit victory.
The Arizona Governors seat will also be difficult to hold by the Democrats. Our best hope would be Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford. If she runs, we have a very good shot of winning.
But McCain's seat would have been big !!!!
So many Arizona democrats were ready, excited & looking forward to knocking off McCain in 2010. That's too bad.
