John Kerry has named fellow Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) as a top candidate for Defense Secretary in his administration, making the point, we guess, that a mentally unstable former POW (the Bush campaign's characterization of McCain during the South Carolina primary in 2000) could do a better job than Rumsfeld has in the conduct of the Iraq War.
Also high on Kerry's list of potential Pentagon chiefs was Sen. John Warner of Virginia, another Republican.
Sen. George Allen, another Virginia Republican, responded incredulously when told of Kerry's comments about McCain. "Kerry said that?" Allen said with a grin. "It's a political gambit."
