What's damaging the McCain campaign now, I suspect, is that this fiercely independent man is trying to please other people -- especially a Republican leadership that doesn't really trust him. He should give that up and be the person whose voice shines through the pages of his life story.

It is that freewheeling style that has made him popular with voters and cemented his reputation for candor and straight talk.
