McCain the Same Decent, Uniting Force as Always

John McCain may have lost the 2008 Presidential election, but that hasn't made him bitter or reclusive. In fact, the Arizona Senator is working to bring the government to consensus, including Democrats. This man, who I was proud to vote for, is more than willing to suck up his pride and put his country first. John Kerry and Al Gore were sore losers, but not John McCain.

"I think that's indicative of the role that John McCain is going to play," said Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who hatched the push-back against Cornyn's gambit over dinner with McCain on Tuesday night, and who followed him to the floor to support Clinton's confirmation. "He's going to play a very active role. He's going to try to forge bipartisan coalitions. And he won't shy away from controversy."

He has always been this way. Even though the media portrayed him as a monster during the campaign, he was the Maverick during the campaign. Between immigration reform, economic stimulus, and opposition to torture, he proved his salt just during the time of his running for President.

But who remembers that?
