McCain Wants Hillary as His Opponent

This comes from the notoriously unreliable Drudge Report, but it certainly sounds possible, given what favors Hillary Clinton has been doing John “100 Years War” McCain with her increasingly vicious attacks on Barack Obama lately:
McCain would prefer to go up against Clinton in the general election, insiders reveal.

He has instructed his campaign staff to “chill out” on countering Hillary Clinton’s torrent of claims and promises as primary voting comes to an end over the next 6 weeks.

McCain made the tactical decision to downplay Clinton’s tale of Bosnia sniper fire, leaving some McCain staffers frustrated and perplexed.

Instead, the critical focus has been on Barack Obama. McCain’s official website features 14 press releases taking on Obama since the first of the year, only 3 for the former first lady.
