  •  Just a thought, but (none)
    is it possible that McCain is setting himself up to be the influential person who ultimately turns to the President and says, "it's over, it's time to go" (who was it that said it to Nixon - Kissinger, Haig?)
    •  interesting point (none)
      You have a good point.

      I think Kissinger and Haig but especially Kissinger went to Nixon and said, " it is time to resign". Nixon pleaded with him and had a temper tantrum and Mini nervous breakdown but relented. Kissinger just looked at Nixon in disbelief as Nixon was losing it.

        The only way that traitor would give up his meal ticket would be if he had a better offer!
        Howard Baker, the last Republican with a trace of honor then, told Nixon the gig was up.

      was one of the Senators that went to the WH and told Nixon that they didn't have the votes to save him. There were 3 of them, but I can't remember the other 2??  Scott is one???
      Meanwhile, I don't think McCain has that kind of backbone anymore!!
    •  I smell a back room agreement (none)
      Remembering back to the 2004 campaign, McCain suddenly stopped challenging and began supporting the Preznit. It struck me as odd then, wondering if McCain won some sort of agreement that Shrub would support him in '08. Would his weird behavior this week be consistent with maintaining such an admittedly conjectural agreement?
