JOHN McCAIN UPDATE….Steve Benen has updated his John McCain Flip-Flop Index. His latest turnabout comes on campaign finance reform, an issue that was once near and dear to his heart, and brings the number of McCain flip-flops to 15. That’s pretty impressive.

And Josh Marshall points out the obvious corollary: McCain’s strength has always been among independents, but independents don’t like panderers. Is it any wonder that his poll numbers have collapsed?
