Dare To Dream

McCain's ability to be on 15 sides of an issue which really only has 2 sides is quite astounding. I suppose that's what his base in the mainstream media are talking about when they refer to his mavericky straight-talking action.

The actual problem with "flip-flopping" was forgotten at some point during Tim Russert's tenure at Meet the Press, where even just changing your mind in response to new facts became a political sin, but surely McCain's tendency to tell different audiences different thing would qualify as that or as that other sin supposedly loathed by journalists, "pandering."
