One Big Tent

McCain won't rule out running with Kerry“John Kerry is a close friend of mine. We have been friends for years,” Mr. McCain said Wednesday when pressed to squelch speculation about a Kerry-McCain ticket. “Obviously I would entertain it.”

But Mr. McCain emphasized how unlikely the whole idea was.

“It's impossible to imagine the Democratic party seeking a pro-life, free-trading, non-protectionist, deficit hawk,” the Arizona senator told ABC's Good Morning America during an interview about illegal steroid use. “They'd have to be taking some steroids, I think, in order to let that happen.”

Man, Kerry-McCain would be a slam dunk for the Democrats. I also don't think that the ideological gap between the two men or between McCain and the Democrats is unbridgeable.
