Michigan pullout signals bigger trouble for McCain

Quick: Tell me how a John McCain presidency would revive Michigan's economy, our beleaguered auto industry, or U.S. manufacturing in general.

If you answered much more than "continue the Bush tax cuts," then you've said more than the McCain campaign has been able to articulate in the past few months.

And that, more than anything else, is the reason McCain packed up his Michigan operation last week. McCain pulled out because he never seemed to connect here, and failed to capitalize on what I think was a golden opportunity to turn this state from mildly blue to solidly red.
