You wonder whether the fight to beat Clinton has taken too much out of him. OK, America probably wants a break from conservatism, and McCain is about as enticing as Hilda Ogden in a rainstorm but it’s still a big ask.
And, oh it’s been a right riveting nomination campaign.
But let’s not forget he is black and there is a mountain of opposition to that.
However, I think it is a rather exciting political development and that he is, potentially, the man.
Bring it on.
