* Anna Quindlen: McCain hedges principle in favor of victory

Posted by Lew Weinstein on September 27, 2008

Anna Quindlen writes in Newsweek …

  • Senator McCain last week was once again hedging principle in favor of victory.
  • In the space of a single news cycle Senator McCain went from being a longtime supporter of deregulation to a man inveighing against the lack of government oversight in the financial markets. He railed against the greed of Wall Street when Wall Street has been the ancestral home of his party.
  • The presidency was once aspirational. Voters wanted someone smarter, better informed, stronger than they were.
  • It can’t really be that America has become a nation so small-minded that intellect must be belittled.
  • What I need is someone to clean up the mess George W. Bush has made of the country I love.

LMW COMMENT: And the person to clean up George W. Bush’s mess cannot be the man (John McCain) who helped make the mess by supporting Bush 90% of the time.
