Regarding John McCain's campaign move yesterday, I noted that campaign shake-ups have recently helped John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and McCain (in the primary) -- turn things around.

Later, on MSNBC, I noticed that Joe Scarborough mentioned it was, perhaps, a bad sign that McCain was shaking up his campaign.  He noted that Reagan, Clinton, and both Bush presidents never did this ...

In truth, Ronald Reagan fired his campaign manager John Sears in 1980, the day after winning New Hampshire.  Granted, it wasn't a General Election move ...
