We've reported on several occasions about Sen. John McCain's early forays into the 2008 Presidential race, and make no mistake, he is putting the pieces in place for a run. He's been holding fundraisers across the country, with some success, but certainly not at a level you expect from a politician with a national following.

McCain has also been creating media events for himself, whether it be with congressional hearings on steroids in sports or the embarrassing lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates with the 5th Amendment assertions the media loves to play over and over on TV.

McCain has been particularly bloodthirsty when it comes to the Abramoff scandal, and one has to wonder why, particularly since he has not been hesitant to reach out to some of Abramoff's former clients to sign them up as prospective charter members of his 2008 campaign's version of the Bush campaign's "Ranger" fundraising program.
