Disbelief as in The Times seems hardly able to comprehend that McCain, the increasingly befuddled un-maverick who extols his decades of national security and foreign policy experience as his biggest asset, would do something so stupid.Among the neocons are Robert Kagan, Max Boot and John Bolton, who between them have probably dispensed more bad advice and created more misery and animosity among the U.S.'s allies than any trio short of Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and John Yoo.
Lawrence Eagleburger, secretary of state under Bush père, tut-tuts that:
"It maybe too strong a term to say a fight is going on over John McCain's soul, but if it’s not a fight, I am convinced there is at least going to be an attempt. I can't prove it, but I'm worried that it’s taking place.McCain tells The Times not to worry because he surrounds himself with a wide range of people.
"There is no question that a lot of my far right friends have now decided that since you can’t beat him, let’s persuade him to slide over as best we can on these critical issues."
