"Ooh, Pick Me! Pick Me!" - Sen. John McCain obviously feels he isn't getting enough media attention. In a desperate cry for relevance, he recently said he has "no confidence" in Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. He's said that there are "strong differences of opinion between myself and Secretary Rumsfeld" on a variety of issues, including troop strength, use of special forces and linguistics.
It's perfectly acceptable for Senator McCain to disagree with the administration. What bothers me is that he aired his opinions to the media instead of keeping them between him and the president. Such behavior and his comments show that the senator has a colossal ego and an almost pathological need for good press. McCain will run for president in 2008. I plan to vote for Guiliani.
