McCain - "Up or Down!"

Drudge posted a quote this morning attributed to Senator John McCain on SCOTUS nominees:

'During the campaign, President Bush said he will appoint judges who will strictly interpret the constitution... thinking anything else is either amnesia or ignorance... elections have consequences... whomever he nominates deserves an up or down vote and no filibuster... and an up or down vote is what we will have'...
Brilliant political move...that is...if this quote is legit and McCain doesn't waffle.

Trackback Pings


No doubt the Senator realizes that in order to win conservative votes he's got to support up or down votes for judicial nominees....especially if he has any desire to run for President in 2008.

Unfortunately, it has become very difficult to trust the beloved Senator McCain. I can't escape the image of him taking a bow on the platform at the press conference announcing the filibuster betrayal that was labeled a "compromise." I was embarrassed for him.
