Yahoo! News – Kerry Says McCain Good Choice to Head Pentagon
“Democratic presidential hopeful John Kerry (news – web sites) said on Wednesday Republican Sen. John McCain topped his list for defense secretary as he criticized the Bush administration for failed policies in Iraq (news – web sites).”
Three things. First, isn’t it traditionally (even legally) taboo for a nominee to name cabinet posts prior to actually being elected? Second, if I were John Kerry, I’d be more worried about finding a running mate than a SecDef. Third, this is just further proof of the unholy alliance between the Senators John. Bush has to support any opposition to this guy in the next primary.
