Did McCain pull a Bill Clinton??

I mean it in the sense that he might of been playing around with a this case a lobbyist. This is old news if the truth be told..from his last run at the Presidency in fact. From the NYT writeup:

A female lobbyist had been turning up with him at fund-raisers, in his offices and aboard a client’s corporate jet. Convinced the relationship had become romantic, some of his top advisers intervened to protect the candidate from himself — instructing staff members to block the woman’s access, privately warning her away and repeatedly confronting him, several people involved in the campaign said on the condition of anonymity.

When news organizations reported that Mr. McCain had written letters to government regulators on behalf of the lobbyist’s clients, the former campaign associates said, some aides feared for a time that attention would fall on her involvement.

Mr. McCain, 71, and the lobbyist, Vicki Iseman, 40, both say they never had a romantic relationship. But to his advisers, even the appearance of a close bond with a lobbyist whose clients often had business before the Senate committee Mr. McCain led threatened the story of redemption and rectitude that defined his political identity.

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann just broke into Hardball to report this little tidbit. Its not so much about the possibility of sex..its about favors for a lobbyist..stay tuned!
