I am very happy that John McCain voted with the Democrats! This is ironic (or something like that). Earlier today, I read a comment that said John McCain used to be known as a maverick, but for a long time he just went along with the Republicans. I wonder if he would have voted “no” if he had not just found out that he will need a lot of treatment for his brain cancer, and even with the best treatment, his days are numbered. I probably wouldn’t vote for him, but I think he is a good guy in general. I have read that he could have gotten out of the POW camp earlier than his fellow officers, because he had “friends in high places,” but he would not leave the others behind.
