John McCain now has a great opportunity to get out from under the President's skirt where he has been since the 2004 election season and reclaim his independence and integrity.
It will take a lot for this observer to forgive McCain for folding on the anti-torture bill, and I'm not pleased at his chiding of John Kerry last week. As a confirmed lefty, I'm quite unlikely to vote for McCain if he were to be the Republican nominee. But I sure would like to have straight-talking, honest candidates representing both parties. It would be good for the country no matter who wins.
As I wrote recently, the Straight Talk Express has been up on blocks and needs a new transmission. This is McCain's time to repair the bus.
