    Election day: McCain the anti-maverick - Phoenix Business Journal

    GREEN VALLEY, Ariz. — Times are strange for a recovering maverick.

    "You've been the first one who's run across the aisle," a woman seated in front of Sen. John McCain said accusingly.

    "Do you have a question?" he snapped. "Do you have a question, really?"

    "How can we believe you now if in the past you were so different?"

    The question could have come from any of the 150 people who filled a rec center in this retirement community 30 minutes south of Tucson. Even among loyalists, it looms.

    Who is the real John McCain?

    The 2008 Republican presidential nominee is facing his toughest re-election battle in years and has responded with a harder conservative persona, talking tough about border security and government spending at every town hall he conducts.

    Earlier this year McCain bizarrely declared, "I never considered myself a maverick," though he long ago acquired the label — and reveled in it — for a willingness to work with Democrats on immigration and campaign finance reform, and to challenge his party, a rebellious fighter pilot turned politician.

    The reinvented McCain has all but disowned past work on immigration. He recently helped block legislation to improve transparency of corporate money in campaigns.

    In fight for re-election, John McCain takes on harder conservative persona - St. Petersburg Times

    Say good night John, or whoever you are.

    The polls have McCain well ahead of Hayworth. I doubt we'll see any upset here.

    I am not really crazy about mccain but he is way way better a candidate than hayworth. That guy is a fail sportscaster nut who is supported by Sheriff joe.

    Yuck. McCain is the less of two evils, but he has been here running things in arizona for a long time. AT least he is not as crazy as Hayworth. I love when hayworth says, yes, I have made a few mistakes....A FEW?

    Look this guy up. He is scary.

    McCain will win because he's a chicken shit who moved right for votes, and most Cons will believe him.
