Whose Afraid of Angry John?

One thing I'm noticing is that progressives seem worried about running against John McCain. I don't understand this. Compared to the people he is poised to beat out for the Republican nomination, McCain seems like political juggernaut, but that doesn't say much. McCain is eminently beatable.

McCain might be idolized by much of our media, but this can't last in the general election. He's not much great at giving speeches, and not a very good debater. In a party full of grumpy old bastards, he stands out for crankiness. What am I missing?
