A point of fact re: McCain and the Confederate Flag


The flag compromise McCain mentioned involved getting rid of the large Confederate Flag flying with the US flag and the SC state flag over the State House.   Instead, a small, square flag now flies alongside the Confederate Memorial to the dead on the statehouse grounds, not far from the statue of Strom Thurmond. Every poll quoted by the SC media shows that South Carolina residents, including black residents, support that compromise.
