I'm compiling a list of the people running the McCain campaign. I am not sure if these people are still in his campaign as McCain has a history of changing his staff often:

Steve Schmidt, senior adviser who worked in George W. Bush's campaign in 2004 (he was known as Bush's attack dog in the 2004 election); Schmidt was also to adviser to Dick Cheney;
Mike McDonald - Assists Schmidt; veteran of Bush-Cheney campaigns;
Mike DuHaime -worked in 2004 Bush campaign;
Karl Rove, McCain adviser who is White House Adviser (Bush's senior strategist)
Mark Salter, senior McCain adviser (chief of staff); McCain's closest aide --"the only person closer to McCain is his wife";
Mark McKinnon, media strategist who was Bush's media strategist;
Ken Mehlman, adviser who had run Bush's 2004 campaign;
