Dear Senator McCain,
Thank you for your application to be President of the United States. Your application was put to a number of our voters and, after an editorial meeting, I regret to say we did not feel your promises fit our requirements at the moment. We would encourage you to send your promises to a different market, who might well find it suitable for them. A Senate position comes to my mind.
It is always difficult for an electorate to deal the limitations of space. There can only be one winner in the race for President, but we can have as many losers as we like, and there will always be many more fine candidates than there will be offices to distribute.
I want to thank you for thinking of us and look forward to future material from you.
D Jason Cooper
