In running a campaign, it is good to know your base and to expand from there. McCain is starting from the base of Hoover voters, and since that is rather small now, he will expand.
More seriously, there may be a parallel, involving Roosevelt. In the next administration - with Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and a possible Obama presidency, we will see the greatest expansion of the government in generations. Universal health care; cap and trade on carbon emissions; more regulation of banking and business in general. The Supreme Court will be the last refuge, unless Obama comes up with the idea of adding a few jurists to bypass the current majority.

The last paragraph of this blog taken without reference to 2008 reads well. Within the context of 2008 - it sounds suspiciously like Herbert Hoover.
