Far from being a modern-day “profile in courage,” McCain’s vote against advancing Obamacare reform represents a complete reversal of the position he won his Senate election with last year. John Merline of Investor’s Business Daily notes that “In the private sector, promising one thing and delivering the other could be referred to as ‘deceptive trade practice.’ For some members of Congress, it’s just another day at the office.”
I don't particularly like or admire Senator McCain. This is probably good for him, since experience shows such people usually have long lives, often refusing to die until well into their 90's. You would think feeling the whoosh of the Grim Reaper's blade would have made the Senator think that it was high time to start behaving in a principled manner. Of course, things rarely work out that way. Character is destiny, they say.
