As climate change reemerges as an issue in the national policy debate, it may help define the legislative legacies of two men who once vied for the White House: Sens. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.).
Both men have championed the issue of global warming for years, including when they served as their party's presidential nominees in 2004 and 2008, respectively.

A long relationship...during which McCain entertained the idea of joining you as your VP in 2004 and defended you in 2008 as strong on national security, as he considered leaving the GOP not once but twice!
Interesting pair - each peaked in Viet Nam and each should retire on his second wealthy wife’s inheritance. Good riddence.
I hope the good folks of AZ vote this RINO rat out in the primary. I cannot stand McCain.
McCain - Shut the F*ck up!
McCain has been pedalling the global warming-climate change Al Gorist agenda for years.
McCain even went all the way to the Conservative Party conference in England to spout this garbage a few years back.
He needs to lose next year but patriots need to separate candidate Deakin from candidate Simcox. They must unite behind one candidate to defeat McCain.
I fear the emergence of a three-way race is a deliberate GOP Establishment tactic to save McCain’s sorry (blank).
Like a bad BM, McCain is history!
