I have recently read an article by former Senator Rick Santorum about John McCain being a secret weapon for the Democrats. I think this story really has me flummoxed. I know that Senator McCain is a decent man, but the prospect of his collaboration with Obama on healthcare and other issues is hopefully false. I hope that Rick wrote this piece to warn of a possible problem before it happens.
As a positive note: I did notice that John McCain stood with Tom Coburn on the ill-begotten lands bill. Hopefully this is the harbinger of his efforts. Honestly, the old cranky John McCain who stood to defeat major spending in the past may be back with us. Regardless of his defeat, I hope McCain takes on the role of Barry Goldwater toward the end of his life. If that happens, we could be successful in this term in congress.
