I'll say this for Sen. John McCain. He thinks ahead.
During today's Senate floor debate, Sen. Carl Levin urged McCain and his fellow conservatives to refrain from filibustering his Iraq proposal, and allow for an "up-or-down" vote.
McCain shrugged him off, saying both parties have employed such procedural tactics in the past.
That wasn't McCain's song two years ago, when he joined the "Group of 14."
