That could explain McCain's apparent jitters during and after the debate. Or maybe he just needed to
goreal bad — apparently, he loves caffeine too much:
As I've been writing throughout the campaign, I think McCain's touchiness and erratic behavior is part of his nature. However, the penchant for caffeine certainly can't be doing anything to contribute greater balance of stability to an already hyperactive and jittery personality like McCain, who can hardly stand or sit still. In fact, in a post from the Concord Monitor blog back in June, McCain himself cites his caffeine intake as a problem, disclosing how its been a factor -- at least, during the Republican primaries -- in his debate performance.
