remember "straight talk express"??? Of course, that was just the first of many of McCain's branding phrases. It is always best to stick to one but he kept flipping through them for some reason. I think he ended on "Country First".

I'd put Maverick at #1 and I agree with Derek about the "My Friends".

lipstick

look at the record

George W. Bush (He wasn't even running but was probably mentioned as much as each candidate.)
