McCain And Sheehan
"He tried to tell us what George Bush would have said," Sheehan, who protested at the president's Texas home during the summer, told reporters. "I don't believe he believes what he was telling me."If so, it may have been a good move. See this DU thread:
McCain, an Arizona Republican, also seemed disappointed after the meeting, which he said had been misrepresented as including some of his constituents. Only one person in her small delegation has ties to the state, and that person no longer lives there.
8. Yes, and he still has balls. I'm not a fan of McCain: He's an evil republican... a member of a political party that seeks to roll back human rights, coddles powerful corporations and advocates torture.I am not sure I would ever sleep well if I believed I had Dracula as president, but this move did play well. A ferocious argument breaks out on the thread, but McCain has his defenders.
As far as I'm concerned, a good republican is like having Dracula as a legislator.
Having said all this: There are capable leaders among the ranks of the Republican party. McCain is one of them. I could sleep well with a McCain presidency
I believe that his campaign finance law is utterly unconstitutional, and in my book that's a black mark against him. It was an unforced error. He may have had good intentions, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
But it's not like my favored nominees ever end up as the candidates, so....
I admit that I don't think he should have done it. Would he feel the need to meet with Jane Fonda if she supposedly was traveling with a few of his constituents? I think not.
