Re: McCain and the Court


Wendy, I am not a McCain fan, and as evidenced below, I am not always up on the most current information.  But you write:

McCain says privately that he would not nominate more Sam Alitos to the Supreme Court, because McCain thinks Alito “wears his conservatism on his sleeve.” 

I understand this is what John Fund reported in a WSJ piece on Monday.  But I think I have also seen since that story appeared that McCain denies having said this.  Is it now really certain that he did say it?
