So, John McCain spoke at Liberty University despite calling Falwell a source of intolerance during the last election. Both men aren't stupid. Falwell knows McCain could be very well be a serious candidate in 2008. What is most scary is that McCain knows that Falwell is a major power broker in the Republican party and wants to be sure that even if they disagree on some issues that Falwell doesn't pull all his forces out to fight him.
This is why I cannot ever vote for a Republican. They have much scarier bed fellows!
By the way, McCain is too conservative for me anyway. His greatest distinction is being somewhat independent, which is almost unheard of recently (see previous blog). This speech makes me think he's letting go of some of that independence for the purpose of viability, which is sad.
