    CHYRON: John McCain is a Maverick. Just ask Democrats.

    SEN. DASCHLE: He can work with Democrats on key issues whether it's campaign finance reform or tobacco policy. He's worked with us.

    SEN. KERRY: I have enormous respect for him. He's a courageous, patriotic American who stands up for what he believes.

    HOWARD DEAN: I admire Senator McCain greatly, he's one of the people we modeled our campaign over because he is very direct, very blunt, and nobody has to guess at what he's thinking.

    SEN. FEINGOLD: I love John McCain, he's a great guy.

    CHYRON: Even Barack Obama has praise for the maverick.

    AD FACTS: Script For "Praising McCain" (WEB 1:00)

    CHYRON: John McCain is a Maverick. Just ask Democrats. SEN. DASCHLE: He can work with Democrats on key issues whether it's campaign finance reform or tobacco policy. He's worked with us.

    · Senator Tom Daschle (D-SD): "Well, John McCain has always been influential in the Senate, in part because of the positions he holds. I don't think influence is determined necessarily just by position; he's obviously influential out of recognition of his chairmanship of the Commerce Committee. But he's also influential because he can work with Democrats on key issues, whether it's campaign finance reform or tobacco policy. He's worked with us, and that has made him, I think, a source of great influence in the Senate." (Sen. Tom Daschle, Press Conference, 3/10/00)

    SEN. BIDEN: John McCain is a personal friend, a great friend and I would be honored to run with or against John McCain.

    · Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) Said He'd Be Honored To Run With McCain. Comedy Central's Jon Stewart: "You may end up going against a Senate colleague, perhaps McCain, perhaps Frist?" Sen. Biden: "John McCain is a personal friend, a great friend, and I would be honored to run with or against John McCain, because I think the country would be better off -- be well off no matter who..." Stewart: "Did I hear, Did I hear with?" Sen. Biden: "You know, John McCain and I think" Stewart: "Don't become cottage cheese my friend. Say it." Sen. Biden: "The answer is yes." (Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" 8/2/05)

    SEN. KERRY: I have enormous respect for him. He's a courageous, patriotic American who stands up for what he believes.

    · Senator John Kerry (D-MA): "What I do know is that John McCain is a close and dear friend of mine. I have enormous respect for him. He's a courageous, patriotic American who stands up for what he believes and I'm proud to call him my friend." (CNBC's "The News," 4/7/04)

    HOWARD DEAN: I admire Senator McCain greatly, he's one of the people we modeled our campaign over because he is very direct, very blunt, and nobody has to guess at what he's thinking.

    · Howard Dean: "Well, first of all, let me say that I admire Senator McCain greatly, he's one of the people we modeled our campaign over because he is very direct, very blunt and nobody has to guess at what he's thinking, which I think is--people--people would like to see a lot more of that in politicians around this country." (CBS's, "Face The Nation," 1/5/03)

    SEN. FEINGOLD: I love John McCain, he's a great guy.

    · Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI): "You know, I love John McCain. He's a great guy. The fact is we do disagree on Iraq, but I think that on the overall fight against terrorism and that that's the number one priority there's a lot of agreement. John and I have been to Baghdad together twice and talked about this at length so obviously I'm gonna be supporting a Democrat for president of the United States, but I have a very high regard for John McCain, and this is just an area of disagreement. We agree tremendously on reform and worked together well and I'm proud to serve with him in the Senate." (ABC's, "This Week," 8/13/06)

    CHYRON: Even Barack Obama has praise for the maverick.

    SEN. OBAMA: Since coming to Washington, I've believed that the right approach begins with the proposal put forward by Senator Lieberman and Senator McCain.

    · Senator Barack Obama (D-IL): "Since coming to Washington, I've believed that the right approach begins with the proposal put forward by Senator Lieberman and Senator McCain, a proposal they've been pushing for years, and I thank them again for their leadership on this issue. The Lieberman-McCain Bill establishes limits for greenhouse gas emissions well into the 21st century. To remain below these limits, the bill encourages the market to determine how best to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, rewarding cost effective approaches using a system of tradable allowances." (Sen. Barack Obama, Hearing, Committee On Environment and Public Works, U.S. Senate, 1/30/07)

    CHYRON: Let's let Hillary Clinton have the final say.

    SEN. CLINTON: I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience he will bring to the White House. And Senator Obama has a speech he gave in 2002.

    · Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY): "I think that I have a lifetime of experience that I will bring to the White House. I know Senator McCain has a lifetime of experience that he will bring to the White House. And Senator Obama has a speech he gave in 2002." (CNN's "The Situation Room," 3/3/08)

    Sadly, most of those dates are from a few years ago...when I too liked McCain. When he really was a Maverick IMO.

    That McCain and this McCain does not seem to be the same...If he wins, I hope he returns to that McCain/Maverick instead of the current one bowing down to bush and his base.

    I guess that is where we differ, I think McCain does speak his mind and will stand up for things he believes in popular or not within the party. When he looked dead in the waters in the primaries he continued with his backing of the war when it would have been easy to play the anti-war card. Because has agreed with Bush on some issues does not make him Bush nor does it mean he has abandoned his believes.
