McCain and Dean Reach Accord on Electoral Rights
Maverick Senator John McCain and Democratic National Committee Chair Howard Dean have agreed to a deal to protect the rights of the minority Democrats in the Electoral College, according to one uncomfirmed report.
Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, who earlier this week brokered a deal over judicial nominees to protect the rights of Democrats in the Senate, today announced a compromise with DNC Chairman Howard Dean which would effectively give Democrats the White House for three of the next five presidential terms.
“The purpose of elections is to protect the rights of the minority,” said Mr. McCain, “So, we’ve agreed to block the nomination of conservatives to the Republican presidential ticket and to lead our more progressive constituents to vote Democrat in 2008, 2012 and 2016.”
