In the smoldering remains of the Romney Presidential Campaign, there seems to be a certain amount of regret about the timing of the release of the New York Times story about John McCain's relationship with a Washington lobbyist.
From the article:
ABC News' John Berman Reports: The remnants of the Romney campaign are shaking their heads this morning.
For months they were whispering about a New York Times investigation into John McCain's ties to a certain lobbyist.
They would poke and prod reporters to see if they had heard anything new about when and if the New York Times would publish the story.
On Thursday, while no one would allow their name to be published, several former advisers lamented the timing of the story, one suggesting, "If this piece had run before New Hampshire, McCain would have lost. If it had run before Florida, he would have lost."
