Campaign 08: McCain and the Border Agents

We have asked — all of us in Congress — have asked for them to proceed with a full investigation. And frankly we are not sure that it would be soon. I’ll get back to you, if you’d like.” A year ago, wouldn’t McCain have basically told this guy to go to hell?
