Article of the Week: McCain is no (Teddy) Roosevelt.

If only wishing made it so. Teddy: icon of the Right, beloved by the Left, a celebrity, trust-buster, war hero, our first great environmentalist…a Republican, a progressive who bolted his own party, member of the Mt. Rushmore Club…and oft-mentioned idol of Senator McCain, the erstwhile Modern Maverick.

Back in the day (circa 2000), Senator McCain had a strong claim to independence from entrenched, monied special interests—and he still shows signs of a caring for our environment. But now…he’s tacked hard to the right, mostly by cynical necessity. 

Here’s the article. Another article was just published today, same subject.
