(KCPW News) At the Republican National Convention earlier this month, a picture of one particular poster held up by an attendee made its way around the Internet, thanks to a case of bad spelling. The poster said "Mavrick." The word has been an essential part of candidate John McCain's campaign, which often emphasizes the times that he's gone against his own party, and now applies that same word to his running mate, Governor Sarah Palin. But is "maverick" the right word for McCain to build his campaign on?
Every week, we talk with Congressional Quarterly columnist Bob Benenson about the 2008 election. This week, he tells KCPW's Jeff Robinson about the problems associated with the McCain campaign's constant use of the word "maverick."
Assuming John McCain plans to attend, KCPW will air Friday night's first presidential debate from 7 to 9 p.m.
