McCain defends Kerry 

In an interview on CBS this morning John McCain defended John Kerry from Republican assertions that electing Kerry would endanger national security. McCain pointed out that Kerry had served his country in war, without explicitly mentioning that Bush had not. He also said that Kerry had to "explain his voting record" and called for both presidential campaigns to tone down the fierce partisan rhetoric we've seen so far.

For all you speculators out there: McCain stated that he would not consider running for VP with either Bush or Kerry. I wasn't aware of it, and I find the idea hard to believe, but I guess there has been some talk of the second possibility.
