John McCain, Democrat?

This report says that John McCain was almost persuaded to become a Democrat in 2001.

Before jumping to conclusions, realize that this could be a way for Democrats to try to sully someone they might think (incorrectly, in my view) would be a strong Republican presidential candidate.

Even so, there is a level of detail in the piece that's disturbing, and it's worth asking John McCain: Is this true? Then again, given that the MSM has been one of the Senator's strongest constituencies, it's not clear the question will ever be posed to him, at least by them.

That being said, it's a matter McCain will need to clear up -- because how can he credibly seek to become the standard bearer for a party he was ready to abandon just six short years ago, if indeed the report is true?
