I’m thinking it’s part of the game. He’s trying to win the independents so that he actually has a shot at this.
You are correct.
I am really hoping that you’re right and this is just a vote-fishing strategy. One of those sorts of comments where “my esteemed colleague” = “that jerk over there.”
But knowing McCain’s position on climate change, I have a nagging feeling that his respect for Gore is too great for comfort...

Oh, I think he’s trying to win independents. The thing is, it’s not a purely political act. No. He really, really means it. John McCain is, for all practical purposes, a moderate Democrat. Nevertheless, I’ll vote for a moderate Democrat over a Marxist any day!
