Is this pure spin from Karl Rove? I mean: could any sane observer see this as true:
Mr. McCain is the most private person to run for president since Calvin Coolidge in the 1920s. He needs to share (or allow others to share) more about him, especially his faith. The McCain and Obama campaigns are mirror opposites. Mr. McCain offers little biography, while Mr. Obama is nothing but.
Update: thinking this through a little, maybe this is Rove's way of signaling to the Christianists that McCain is one of them, just too discreet to say so. But it's obvious that privately McCain could hardly be further from evangelical fervor.
