It showed what poor decision-making and leadership skills he had.

He is still displaying poor decision-making as a Senator; it would have been a disaster if he'd been elected.

As I wrote in the previous question, the choice of a VP candidate cannot help a campaign, but as the first high profile decision of a Presidential campaign it CAN hurt.

McCain wanted to "go maverick" for his first decision and nominate Joe LIEberman but his advisors vetoed him. It was a dramatic insight into the campaign and McCain's thought process that he went from the attempt at national unity ticket to the divisive and ignorant then-Governor of Alaska.
