In the course of making some good points about Bobby Jindal yesterday, Ross mentioned “the possibility that [McCain] would only serve one term.” I’ve heard a lot of speculation about this from conservative pundits, but it seems like a fairly straightforward question that McCain ought to be asked and that he ought to give some kind of answer to.

I think it was Ramesh Ponnuru who first suggested that it might be a canny move for McCain to foreswear ambitions for a second term, and I think he was right — it would assuage fears about his age, make conservatives happier about him, fit in with his “straight-talk” persona, and give us all more opportunity discuss TMBG’s “James K. Polk”.
