    Because McCain is a bigger liberal than he pretends to be.

    The news media has had McCain on a short leash for the last 10 years. They don't let him get too far away before they ask him to see things their way.

    Steve & JB, tone it down a bit, this is a family friendly site, and stuff like that gets threads locked.

    McCain is a Liberal, Hagel is a liberal. Birds of a feather.

    You are right, and I apologise. I don't know why I am cursing today. Usually the swear filter gets it. Maybe I can edit it out. I will make the attempt.

    edited to add: I substituted in a word that means the same thing... :)

    McCain and Hagel have had their little squabbles but at the end of the day they belong to the same club. McCain just used the Hagel confirmation dust-up as a chance to get more publicity. There was never chance the Senate would actually block an ex-Senator from a cabinet post (unless his name was John Tower).

    Sometimes emotion gets the best of us and this case is no exception.
