McCain's honor is peeking through

Yesterday, McCain expressed his feeling that convicted felon Senator Ted Stevens should resign from the Senate
Yesterday, Senator Ted Stevens was found guilty of corruption. It is a sign of the health of our democracy that the people continue to hold their representatives to account for improper or illegal conduct, but this verdict is also a sign of the corruption and insider-dealing that has become so pervasive in our nation’s capital.

It is clear that Senator Stevens has broken his trust with the people and that he should now step down. I hope that my colleagues in the Senate will be spurred by these events to redouble their efforts to end this kind of corruption once and for all.

Senator McCain is right. Senator Stevens is unfit to serve in the United States Senate. The question on the table is, will Bush pardon Stevens before he leaves office?
