Republican candidate John McCain has been knows to stir up some conflicts over the past couple of decades on capitol hill. The Washington Post reports that McCain has accused fellow republicans of bribes, cursed some publicly, and accused another of ‘corporate scandal.’

Now that McCain has a real shot at winning the primaries, many folks in Washington are going to need to reevaluate their loyalty, and possibly forgive and forget for old accusations. One example is Ted Stevens, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee who has often argued with McCain over government spending. He said, “I forgive him for whatever disagreements he has had with me. We can disagree on things, but I have great admiration for him.”

Despite ruffling feathers in the past, it looks like many republicans are going to stick by McCain and support him, though not all. Sen. Thad Cochran said about McCain, “The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine, he is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me.” I suppose only after the results come in will we know where the true loyalty stands…
