You know, I got to thinking last night.
If John McCain had been elected in '08, Jan Brewer would never have become governor. SB1070 would have been vetoed.
And a McCain Justice Department sure as hell would not have dropped an investigation into Joe Arpaio right before the damn 2012 election.
I'm beginning to see why candidates almost always win their home states: sure, I still think McCain would have been a terrible choice for the country...but I'm beginning to think Arizona really would have been in much better shape if he were President.
Then again, Russell Pearce would probably still be Senate President. So there's that.
