More "Bullshit Express"

Now this is to an extent politicians of one party giving a story about a politician of another -- but I have to say, I cannot remember a story like this about a person running for President other than those that really did switch parties (for example, John Connally). It appears that McCain was damn close to leaving the GOP in 2001 and though calling himself Independent caucusing with the Democrats.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was close to leaving the Republican Party in 2001, weeks before then-Sen. Jim Jeffords (Vt.) famously announced his decision to become an Independent, according to former Democratic lawmakers who say they were involved in the discussions.

In interviews with The Hill this month, former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) and ex-Rep. Tom Downey (D-N.Y.) said there were nearly two months of talks with the maverick lawmaker following an approach by John Weaver, McCain’s chief political strategist.

Democrats had contacted Jeffords and then-Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-R.I.) in the early months of 2001 about switching parties, but in McCain’s case, they said, it was McCain’s top strategist who came to them.

Oh man, Daschle is often referred to as a Casper Milquetoast-type, but not as dishonest (at least by politician standards).

But who is the real Casper Milquetoast now? Sucking up to the war-loving, non-serving base of the Bush Party.
