…but does John McCain have to start the general election campaign lauding his skills for compromise? (And then do you have to remind me about your issues with the First Amendment, senator?) A preview of his speech tonight:
When members of my party refused to compromise not on principle but for partisanship, I have sought to do so. When I fought corruption it didn’t matter to me if the culprits were Democrats or Republicans. I exposed it and let the chips fall where they may. When I worked on campaign finance and ethics reform, I did so with Democrats and Republicans, even though we were criticized by other members of our parties, who preferred to keep things as they were. I have never refused to work with Democrats simply for the sake of partisanship. I’ve always known we belong to different parties, not different countries. We are Americans before we are anything else.
But I guess I’m not his constituency as much as Hillary voters are.
