    I think McCain didn't attend the hearing because that's not the hearing he wants. He wants a "Watergate-style" hearing.  In other words, he wants to derail Obama's second term with a lengthy mudslinging procedure, just as the GOP did to Clinton. What McCain really wants is a Lewinsky-style hearing.  There's no intern and a blue dress this time, but their point is exactly the same: "he lied."

    This has worked quite well for the GOP in the past.  Yet "he lied" isn't resonating with the public after Romney's mendacious campaign.  Thank goodness no one is taking the bait so far.
