Looking Forward - Senator John McCain wants to be president. He will likely try for the Republican nomination in 2008. I didn't support him in 2000 and even before this latest move against free speech, wasn't inclined to support him in 2008. Now, though, I'm going to actively campaign against him, and I hope others in the blogosphere join me. This isn't about his shameless sucking up to the media or his deviations from Republican beliefs - it's bigger than that.
McCain, through the lawsuit he filed against the FEC, has shown his disdain for free speech and for the Constitution. He should not be allowed to swear to preserve, protect and defend a document he doesn't seem to respect.
