Fineman: “Truth be told, John McCain really can’t stand George W. Bush, even if he agrees with him on a lot of things, especially Iraq. It’s amusing for us political reporters to watch the senator from Arizona struggle with the role fate handed him: riding shotgun on the Bush re-election stagecoach. It’s hard to know whether McCain, deep down, wants to protect his passenger or let the Indians have him. As for Bush, he doesn’t trust McCain, but needs him.”

Concentration is important!
