The Establishment used a lot of dirty tactics to clear the way for the Bush brand. McCain was at his peak in 2000 and would never get that back. He was a maverick. The party doesn't like independent thinkers they can't control.
In 08' I wondered whether he was sabotaged by the GOP with their VP choice. McCain was just a shadow of his old self by then. Sad.
