ST. PAUL - Here at the Republican National Convention, it's easy to pick out those who support or work for John McCain: They wear McCain hats or display a star pin on their lapel. But there is a very special pin for those who stuck with the Republican presidential candidate when it looked like all was lost. It's the white "McCain National Leadership Team" pin above. The very few seen here wearing it stuck with McCain and continued to raise money back in 2007 when it looked like he was going to have to withdraw from the race as he floundered in the polls. Says the guy wearing this pin: "Man, we were with him when it was darkest."
