Senator Lindsey Graham’s ‘Courage’

Dana Milbank slobbers all over the senator. No question, Graham gets great press for being thoughtful, bipartisan, etc. But note that Graham regularly panders to protectionists. His South Carolina colleague Jim DeMint votes for free trade — a risky position made more so by Graham’s stance. Tell me, which one is more courageous and high-minded?
