Apparently Sen. John McCain is happy with the way his re-emergence as a Senate leader is working out. Over the past three weeks he has made a series of high-profile public appearances, including the AmSpec’s Saturday Evening Club Dinner last week Now he’s moving to Stage 2.
Word is that he is looking at his leadership Political Action Committee and how best to leverage that over the next year or so heading into his decisions after the 2006 election cycle. Lobbyists and supporters are getting the full court press to max out now. That is giving some long-time allies the impression that McCain is once again fully engaged and ready to start pulling the tarp off of the Straight Talk Express.
