Speaking of the ONCGTC phenom, have you ever stopped to ponder whether progressives might have seen more of their agenda enacted had McCain won in 2008?

Serious question. For example, McCain also campaigned on closing Gitmo. Mightn't he have done it by now, given that the Republicans in Congress would be more deferential to one of their own than Obama?

I could also easily imagine McCain going into full "Gang of 14" mode, "reaching across the aisle" and all that to sign a more expansive health care reform bill than the one Obama (barely) got passed.

Just a thought.
