He’s BAAAACK. A possible Juan McCain sighting

Reid says Democrats to tackle big issues and apparently that includes the help of Senator John McCain.

Q: With more Democrats in the Senate and the House and a Democrat in the White House, how do you see congressional efforts playing out on such issues as health care and immigration?

A: On immigration, there's been an agreement between (President-elect Barack) Obama and (Arizona Republican Sen. John) McCain to move forward on that. ... We'll do that. We have to get this economy stuff figured out first, so I think we'll have a shot at doing something on health care in the next Congress for sure.

Q: Will there be as much of a fight on immigration as last time?

A: We've got McCain and we've got a few others. I don't expect much of a fight at all. Now health care is going to be difficult. That's a very complicated issue. We debated at great length immigration. People understand the issues very well. We have not debated health care, so that's going to take a lot more time to do

If McCain is doing what I think he is, and if Reid's statements can be taken truthfully, then there is going to be major fall out from the GOP, especially from those who had no other choice but to take him at his word and held their noses to support him. Hopefully this will further expose the massive hemorrhaging of the GOP caused by the old gray establishment. I look forward to the newer faces and names making statement and denouncing the RINOs.

If this all comes to pass then let me state explicitly; I hope the Maverick crashes and burns for the last time.

In ethics "maverick" is known as "political opportunism", but you call it what you want. ;)
