Former Gore campaign manager Donna Brazile lobbied the House yesterday on campaign finance, fulfilling a partnership she said began with Republican Sen. John McCain during the 2000 presidential race.

Miss Brazile said she got to know Mr. McCain during the Republican South Carolina presidential primary in February 2000, when he was locked in a fierce contest with then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush and she was coordinating strategy for Vice President Al Gore.

McCain has no shame. The guy is so blinded by this stupid CFR business that he can't see anything else! What a disturbed man he must be.

John McDemorat is a war hero, your not, so be quiet and do what he wants cause Chris Mathews and the rest of the media think that his bodily functions don`t smell. This man is a bitter loser that hates GWB and any R was for our president.

"McCain has no shame."

Nor does he have any honor or integrity.

IMO he is more emotionally and mentally ill, than physically ill.

I believe McCain has totally lost it, and is blinded by bitterness.

Not only that, this shows that Gore was actively working behind the scenes against Bush this early in the process. I don't believe there WAS a Democrat primary in SC, was there? What was Brazile doing there?

She SAYS she was "coordinating strategy for Vice-President Gore." Notice the word "COordinating".

These people are REALLY beginning to get on my nerves. They obviously have some sort of long ranged plan -- look at all the people who are running for office from that administration!

Someone please PRIMARY him out of office.

Hell, if I lived in AZ, I'd vote for his DEMOCRAT opponent.

I first began to suspect an alliance between McCain and the Clinton White House when he was given a prominent role at the White House New Year's festivities the beginning of 2000. This story has Brazile consorting with him in Feb. 2000.

Which might explain also why he failed to speak up in the Florida recount.

"We struck up a friendship," Miss Brazile said. "John Weaver [a McCain adviser] was our emissary."

And both this story and the Roll Call story have Mike Pence saying that Weaver is now working with the Dems to defeat Republican House incumbents. First I've ever heard of Weaver. Who knows anything about him?

A google.com search gives a lot of news pieces about McCainiac put out by John Weaver. Just rereading some of them made me sick all over again...one in particular about Gary Bauer's secret meeting with mccain.

I agree with you on both counts ... but it goes beyond this.

When McCain's response to Kosovo was to send in masses of our ground troops, that convinced me he was a person of demented judgement. Until that time, I reacted to McCain the same way I responded to clinton when I first began observing him during the primaries of 1991 ... something about him I knew was REAL trouble, but couldn't quite figure out what it was until later.

Howlin, I agreed with this point when you made it on a thread several weeks ago ...

I am truly alarmed by how many of 'them' are running at the state level ... and the large number of erroneous news articles [and rats dialogue] directed at President Bush.

SOMETHING IS UP ... there is definitely a plan in place, and I believe the clinton's, McAwful, and Carville are at the core of it.

Are you serious? If so, this is GREAT.

If you can reveal it, who is on the list, and how are they tracked and by whom?

I keep track of ... sorta ... bill richardson, senator bingaman, and some of the dims in NM ... but it sure gives me an upset stomach to keep track of them. Pretty vile characters, IMO.

Why would McCain want help from someone a democrat that engineered AlGores loss to "W"?
