McCAIN FOR VEEP?....One of the thoughts that's passed through my head in the last few days has been that the Abu Ghraib scandal could bring new life to an old chestnut: John McCain as Kerry's VP.

There are all sorts of reasons this could never happen, but let's face it: there's a powerful case to be made that a "fusion" ticket of a liberal Democrat paired with a Republican known for his integrity is the only chance America has to truly change course in Iraq and regain the trust of the world. I'm not even sure whether I'd personally be for or against this, but the bipartisan symbolism of such a pairing is hard to ignore.

Andrew Sullivan makes the case in The New Republic today. Check it out.
