John McCain says he plans to consult with Democratic Rep. John Lewis when he's president. That's news to Lewis.
During Saturday's presidential forum at Rick Warren's California megachurch, John McCain was asked to name the "three wisest people" he would "rely heavily on" if elected president
Quote:
But even though McCain has now repeatedly cited Lewis as a role model and potential adviser, McCain has not established a relationship with the Georgia Democrat in the 22 years they have served in Congress together.

"Sen. McCain and I are colleagues in the US Congress, not confidantes. He does not consult me. And I do not consult him."
MotherJones Blog: John Lewis: John McCain's Wise Man?

McCain gave a lot of fake answers at the forum imo.

Default McCain wants to rely on a progressive Democrat?

The Carpetbagger Report comments on the OP link:
“Sen. McCain and I are colleagues in the US Congress, not confidantes. He does not consult me. And I do not consult him.”

Well, no, of course not. McCain is a conservative Republican with an underwhelming record on civil rights. Lewis is a progressive Democrat who has championed civil rights throughout his life.

McCain is going to “rely … heavily” on Lewis if elected president next year? We should be so lucky.

http://www.thecarpetbaggerreport.com...ves/16603.html

Did he say it because Lewis is black, and was beaten on in Selma? With Martin Luther King? A holiday in whose name McCain fought against for years?

(one more fact about McCain which does not need lies or innuendo to make a powerfully damaging ad - if Obama will just do it)
