â€œThe good news for McCain is that this year he has consistently run ahead of his party,â€ columnist E.J. Dionne wrote. â€œThe bad news is that the GOP is in such a deep hole McCain may not be able to climb out. When voters in a recent NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll were asked, without candidatesâ€™ names, which party they wanted in the White House, Democrats had a 16-point lead. But when they were asked to choose between Obama and McCain, Obama led by only six points.â€

Former presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee warned New Hampshire Republicans against demonizing Barack Obama, and praised â€œhis magnificent climb.â€ But Huckabee likened Democratic primary voters to wannabe buyers in a dealership showroom. â€œThe car is really appealing. Itâ€™s got that new-car smell and all the bells and whistles,â€ Huckabee said. â€œThen youâ€™ve got to sit down and decide, â€˜Can I afford the payments?â€™ I think when people start looking at what Obama is saying, the very last thing they need, in this tough economy, is more tax burden on their families and their future.â€ Which raises a question: If Obama were a car, what model would he be? How about John McCain?
