The EFM Feature

That’s my answer to the question of whether Senator McCain — as much as he is a hero — would be the best Republican nominee in 2008. And it was his answer this morning when Tim Russert asked him whether he was wrong to vote against President Bush’s tax cuts:

You want to talk about a candidate taking different positions? Senator McCain apparently thinks the tax cuts — which will expire in 2010 — should never have been enacted, but he has pledged to extend them.
Governor Romney’s mind changed on abortion. That makes sense — the same thing has happened to countless Americans. That’s why the poll numbers on abortion are turning around for our side. But this? It’s not logical, it’s not principled, and it makes a mockery of “straight talk.” Hopefully New Hampshire Republicans will see through it.
