Jamie, what do you think about it? Either McCain was in favor of this, in which case all arguments saying Obama favors succession are null. Or McCain
voted yes when he wasn't even for the bill.. Politics as usual? What do you think?
I just started reading about the details today.
First, I know that nobody voted in favor of Hawaii or Alaska leaving the U.S. All those threads about Palin and Obama, and AIP, etc., seemed silly to
And I do know that the Senate is an odd institution with much emphasis placed on protocol, tradition, and rules of order. I'm pretty sure that's
not the right terminology, but it's late here and I think you'll get what I mean.
Either McCain believed the native Hawaiins should have their own government, or he voted YES out of courtesy knowing the vote wouldn't pass, or he
made a deal to vote YES on this in exchange for something else.
I have no idea what the real explanation is so I won't even guess.
