    “Cochran said there’s nothing wrong with seeking support from Democrats
    and independents, saying it’s something he’s done for decades.”

    Remind me again how important it is for the base to uncritically support the GOP if we want our interests represented…

    I don’t think any of us at The Other McCain have taken that position. Certainly not since Romney went down in flames.
