John McCain Again

Senator John McCain is in the center of another effort to broker a compromise on President Bush's nominations:
WASHINGTON, May 27 - One of John R. Bolton's leading Republican backers, Senator John McCain of Arizona, signaled his support on Friday for a compromise in which the White House might allow Senate leaders access to highly classified documents in return for a final vote early next month on Mr. Bolton's nomination as United Nations ambassador.
Senators calling on the administration to share the documents "have some substance to their argument," Mr. McCain said.
Current head counts indicate 53 votes for Bolton and 45 votes against.
