    A lot of people who gamble favor that.

    •  He's such a man of principle. What a maverick! (0+ / 0-)

      As public opposition to tribal casinos has grown in recent years, Mr. McCain has distanced himself from Indian gambling, Congressional and American Indian officials said.

    •  There has to be a reason for this (0+ / 0-)

      Either the Slot Machine Manufacturers weren't playing ball with his lobbyist pals or the manufacturers were supporting another candidate...there has to be something to this.

      Based on my reading of the Times article, I know that if he turns against an element of the gambling industry, it is because John McCain feels someone has crossed him.  And he is vindictive.

      He's not altruistic and he's not going to be "my friend" by trying to protect me from slot machine manufacturers.
