McCain also Spurned Bush in 2000

Interesting indeed. It looks like Bush is in no position to wave the second choice flag now that this revelation that John McCain was wooed by the Bush campaign in 2000 and turned them down. From Political Wire in McCain Turned Bush Down:

“I told President Bush when he asked me in 2000 if, when he asked me if I was interested, I said I was not interested.”

— Sen. John McCain, quoted on the The Early Show, on turning down an offer by George Bush to be his running mate. Yesterday, Republicans noted McCain had rejected Sen. John Kerry’s similar offer.

The Republicans may end up eating crow after the Democrats throw together an ad response to this revelation.
