"MAVERICK MODERATISM" -- MCCAIN MAY WIN THE BATTLE, BUT WILL LOSE THE WAR

Brendan Miniter, in a column entitled "The McCain Myth," published in today's "WSJ.com" "Opinion Journal," dispels the notion that Senator John McCain (RINO-AZ) gained any traction in terms of his presidential ambitions in putting together the 11th hour "deal" ("The Great Senate Compromise") that undercut Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's (R-TN) leadership and President Bush's mandate from his Republican core to place conservative, non-activist judges on the Federal bench.

Some of us in the blogosphere want to make sure Brendan Miniter's analysis is indeed prescient.
