  •  But McCain's record Is right wing (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Some in the media made him out as a maverick...but that's not his voting record except for maybe campaign finance .  And once he kissed Bush, it was all over.  When McCain didn't fight back hard and dirty after what Bush did to him in South Carolina, it convinced me he was too weak to ever be President.(Keep in mind I was always a Democrat, pro Gore...gave money, attended events, etc...but I hated the way Gore's campaign was run and was alarmed when he distanced himself from the Clintons). The Bushies intimidated him and he caved.

    But if you look at voting records, Hillary is liberal by definition.  McCain is not by definition a moderate.
    He's just not extreme. But he voted for Alito, voted for Roberts...stuck by Bush throughout these 7 years.

    Bradley script refers to when Bill Bradley challenged Gore in the primary.  Gore was trashed endlessly by the "liberal press."  The full story is in the archives of  It is well documented there and there are quotes and links that are impressive. But it is a very disturbing narrative.
    Check it is quite absorbing.
