There may not be a groundswell of support for John McCain becoming a Democrat to run for president in 2004. But there is a groundswell of articles telling him to do it. Josh Green’s piece in the Washington Monthly went up today. And tomorrow Jon Chait’s piece on the same topic is going online on the New Republic website. I happen to know that neither of these guys is following the other. There’s just some weird McCain-as-Dem-for-President mojo going around. Also, it’s some strange online journalism, game-theory moment: both pubs are scooping their print mags to get their pieces on the web first.
