    Well, that was before you agreed to work for the country under a Democratic president.
    -
    Unpardonable sin. Didn’t you learn anything from Jon Huntsman or Judd Gregg?

    It would have been very difficult for relative moderates such as myself, and a whole lot of others, to choose between President Obama and Jon Huntsman if he had been the actual candidate for the Republican Party!

    He really did impress me as being a very sensible and intelligent alternative to President Obama.

    But of course, to the ultra conservative Tea Party types he had already committed the unpardonable sin of any Republican in that he was willing to work for the current administration, even if it was for the betterment of this nation. And as they then controlled the Republican agenda Huntsman could not even get to first base as the Republican nominee.

    For the true Republicans, truly, truly, sad!

    John McCain used to claim he was a maverick. Now he’s just the Senate’s version of the old man hollering “Get off my lawn!”

    Apologies if I’ve offended the Senator’s daughter. Loved her book. Maybe she’s the one who should be in politics.

    McCain was never the “maverick” people claimed, and even he disclaimed the title. What he was, was a man driven by rage and vindictiveness. When he stood up against Bush, it was because he was mad at Bush’s treatment of him during their presidential race. Now he is just mad at Obama for beating him. He’ll say anything that fits his anger.
    In truth, he’s always had a rage problem (and he even refers to it in his book), no doubt exacerbated by his wartime experiences (PTSD is likely), but there’s no evidence he has tried to do anything about it.

    Ant the really sad part is that if "President-elect Romney (SHUDDER!!) had nominated Hagel for the EXACT same post, McCain, Ms Graham, and the rest would be praising him to the heavens as “The Best Possible Choice For The Job!”

    bork? The real bork was not somebody that was suitable for
    the supreme court. What has that got to do with Hagel?

    And anyone who thinks the constitution shouldn’t apply to women, and that the first amendment ONLY guarantees the right to criticize the government but no other free speech, shouldn’t be on the supreme court. And besides, it’s John McCain who prefers dictators to democracy, not Hagel (viz. Libya, Syria, Egypt.)

    Don’t worry. They only kill their masters. One can only hope.

    McCain just wants Hagel to admit he was wrong about the Iraq war… which he’s not.

    "It would have been very difficult for relative moderates such as myself, and a whole lot of others, to choose between President Obama and Jon Huntsman . . . "

    I completely agree with you. In fact, I would have voted for Huntsman over Obama.

    Unfortuntately (or fortunately for him, I guess!) Huntsman has been thrown off the right-wing bus as it careens towards oblivion.
