    Since voting is privately done, no one can be sure who anyone else voted for.
    Neither should they know.
    And you think this means what?

    They shouldn't unless a person takes the initiative to reveal his private decision.

    I believe the story for three reasons: 1) McCain was upset with the Bushies after 2000 for what he believed were stories originating from their camp about his alleged "black love child"; 2) the company he keeps, in the sense that not many pubs wouldn't even consider socializing with Huffington; 3) his previous dissent with the current chief on everything from taxes to torture to global warming.

    I think this will hurt McCain with the GOP faithful because it sounds believable.

    The animosity between McCain and Bush is well documented. This is only the latest development. And since you consider Huff to be such an obvious liberal wacko, what was McCain doing chilling with her? Evidently, he was steemed and venting, and found the appropriate circle of friends to vent to. I mean, you don't think a conversation with Huff would turn pro-Bush do you?

    I don't think you understand my point: McCain's openly socializing with her (which isn't disputed by him) will hurt him. The story sounds believable.

    ETA: it isn't just Huff claiming this: read the articles. He reportedly told several people the same thing.

    ETAgain: he certainly had a motive not to vote for Bush, what with his recent primary loss and all.

    I am not a McCain fan. I dont care if he did or did not. Both articles reference Huffington. She is about as left as you can get.

    Agreed. And if any person expressed unsuspected/unusual views about Bush in that dinner convo, it wasn't her.

    And how do we know they did?

    It means nothing to me, just as who obama voted for president means nothing to me.
    Most everyone is going to vote for someone, or has voted for someone in the past.
