McCain may be the ONLY Senator in either party who combines a shred of integrity with the balls to, on occassion, actually and bluntly speak his mind. And for that, you trash and villify him? Standing on principle is what ALL elected officials should be expected to do rather than cutting absurdly sleazy deals, e.g., Hawaii's quid pro quo with Alaska. Besides, anyone who holds lawyers in contempt, views the profession as inherently dishonest and the system as fatally flawed can't be all bad. (FYI: Im a long time LAWYER).
