McCain and his campaign responded terribly to the financial crisis, completely undercutting the argument that McCain was ready to lead and Obama wasn't. He focused resources in states like IA and PA which weren't going to go for him, while continuing to ignore turnout operations and valuable voter-contacts in states that actually ended up being close.

He could've won this election, he just handled it all wrong.
