>> So true. For example, McCain clearly thought that it was right to help out Charles Keating back in the 80's... <<

But in fairness, McCain, like John Glenn, played a rather minor role in the Keating Five affair. It was Cranston, Riegle and DeConcini who were the big fish there -- Cranston in particular.

Still raises a little bit of legitimate concern about judgment, but I think neither McCain nor Glenn intended to do anything corrupt.
