The Cheney-McCain Divide

Email Email Print

The Washington Post runs a shocker: The Vice President thinks Congressional intervention in GWOT detainee treatment is a bad idea. As with the item of his criticism of Rumsfeld below, this account of John McCain’s opposition to Cheney will also be part of the GOP’s electorate collective memory in 2008.

McCain’s problem is that many people view his every action as the product of self-serving calculation, and a need to be seen as being “apart” and “different.” Even on the issue of harsh interrogation of detainees, McCain’s very public approach based on his long imprisonment and suffering only reinforces his profile as a man who not insists on being heard, but insists on being seen as being heard.
