Strange Bedfellows (a 100% Weiner-free story)

At a time when GOP presidential hopefuls attack each other publicly, House Dems wait and see as mid-term elections approach, and Senators filibuster changes to the filibuster, in the New Republic great praise is lavished upon President Obama by none other than Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), the GOP nominee who battled Obama in his first presidential campaign in 2008. The old saw “politics makes strange bed fellows” is truer now than ever – and it has nothing to do with DOMA, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, or candidates for office in New York State.
