Mike Murphy Joining McCain Team?

Posted: Jul 07, 2008 8:25 AM
Bill Kristol predicts Mike Murphy -- the man who "masterminded" McCain's 2000 campaign -- might be joining the McCain campaign.  

My take:  McCain needs advisers who think outside the Bush world paradigm, and Murphy fits the bill.  In a best-case scenario, Murphy's presence might rekindle some of the 2000 magic, and allow McCain to be McCain.  But I also have to think that in a worst-case scenario, McCain has to believe that if he has to go down, he should at least have the peace of mind in knowing that he went down doing things his way.
