October Surprise?

One point I've seen made in several places is that McCain's "maverick" identity is manifesting by him attempting to hit the reset button on his campaign every few weeks. It was done with the Palin nom, and with him "suspending" his campaign to focus on the economy (which turned out to be a big waste of time.)

With Palin becoming less and less visible (and considerably less relevant) it seems to me that McCain was planning to replace her all along. I suggested this to my wife, and she thought that McCain couldn't replace her, but that Palin could bow out for any one of a number of "personal" reasons and then be replaced. A subtle semantic difference, but real nonetheless.

So, sometime next month, in a stroke of maverick boldness, Palin will step down and be replaced. What do you think?

Poll #1267962 October Surprise?

Will Palin bow out and McCain replace her before the election?
