McCain can' t take US 'Red States' for granted

Amid the seemingly widespread opposition to the Iraq War, Presdent Bush was re-elected in 2004 for a second term with the overwhelming support in the 'Red States'. However, since 2005, Bush's glorious day was over and since 2006, the Democrats have gained firm control of the American Congress. So, in 2008, many people in 'Jesusland' may have also changed their political sentiment (as long as Barack Obama does not declare himself to be a Muslim) and McCain certainly cannot take the American heartland for granted in his bid for the presidency.

Worldviews of McCain, Obama in perspective

McCain is on the "left-wing" of the Republican party, and his past record is not that of a Bible-Thumping neo-conservative.
A lot of the Red-Necks are very uncomfortable with Obama, but will not necessarily support McCain, instead stay at home on Election day.

you are right: although McCain is a Republcan, he is not a neo-con but, I guess, a traditional Realist.
