McCain No Maverick

Remember when Sen. John McCain was the “maverick” presidential candidate? Nothing epitomized it more than telling off Jerry Falwell & Co. during the 2000 campaign. Ever since, he’s been deconstructing that label in anticipation of another run – one in which he can’t afford to alienate true believers on the right.

Most recent case in point: His presidential campaign, which is currently chasing Mitt Romney’s for organizational heft in Florida, has announced the endorsements of Cuban-American U.S. House members Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Mario Diaz-Balart and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. They are among South Florida’s most dogmatic Cold Warriors when it comes to Cuba.

Maverick?

Is James Garner available?
