Another strike against McCain

I am not, and have never been, a fan of McCain. I don't consider him a moderate, and his stance on such important issues as torture, abortion, and the Iraq War makes him very much someone I wouldn't want to see in the highest US office. Another reason is that he seems to surround himself with some pretty bad advisors - it has actually gotten so bad that I half expect Rumsfeld to become his security advisor any day now.

A data point.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) delivered a major policy speech today focusing attention on the threat posed by global climate change. McCain said, “The world is already feeling the powerful effects of global warming, and far more dire consequences are predicted if we let the growing deluge of greenhouse gas emissions continue, and wreak havoc with Gods creation.”

Also today, McCain released a statement proudly announcing that former Defense Secretary James Schlesinger has “endorsed John McCain for President and will advise his campaign on energy and national security issues.”

Chris Mooney has covered James Schlesinger in the past.
