John McCain at BCS Coin Toss

Hotline On Call observes that “no amount of cash today can match the exposure John McCain received tonight during the coin toss of the BCS nat’l title game between the two biggest schools in the two most important states in presidential campaign lore. The referee made a point to make sure that the players from swing states Florida and Ohio State were personally introduced to McCain.”

Doug Haller, Jason P. Skoda, Jeff Metcalfe, Richard Obert of the Arizona Republic have a different view: “The potential 2008 presidential candidate flipped the coin. Florida won the toss. And McCain lost Ohio in the future election. Yes, it happened that fast.”
