Former Arizona State Schools Superintendent Lisa Graham Keegan offers a very revealing quote in the Arizona Republic, which writes about how she’s jumping on board John McCain’s presidential campaign full-time.

“Having Senator McCain be in a position to get ready to start talking about education a little bit more fully in his campaign, it’s just a great opportunity to be a part of,” Keegan said.

In a position? To get ready? To start talking about education? A little bit? More fully?

The election is only six months away!

Mike Petrilli at Fordham’s Flypaper seems to see this as a good sign that McCain isn’t ready to to cede the issue of education. I guess it is a good sign that the Arizona Republican is almost, but not quite, in a position to get ready to start talking a little bit more fully about education.
