Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., lost some of his maverick luster after accepting an invitation to speak at Bob Jones University and voting to make President Bush’s tax cuts permanent. But he still maintains that he won’t prostitute himself to become president. “I don’t want it that badly," McCain told David Ignatius of The Washington Post. “I will continue to do what is right. I will continue to pursue torture, climate change. If that means I can’t get the Republican nomination, fine. I’ve had a happy life. The worst thing I can do is sell my soul to the devil.” And as for accusations of being a hypocrite, McCain argued: “I haven’t changed. My record is the same on all issues, which is that of a conservative Republican. Not a liberal Republican, not a moderate Republican.”
