If this isn’t cynical opportunism, I don’t know what you’d call it:
When McCain ran for president the last time, he denounced Falwell as one of America’s “agents of intolerance.” But now that McCain is gearing up to run for president as the GOP’s establishment candidate, he has told Falwell that he spoke “in haste” in 2000. “It just came down to pure old politics in South Carolina and other states,” Falwell said.
Falwell and McCain first made peace in a face-to-face meeting a few months ago. In a sign of their improved relationship, McCain has agreed to be the graduation speaker at Falwell’s Liberty University on May 13.
