All the wringing of hands about why-oh-why Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., would agree to give the commencement address at the Rev. Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University on Saturday has seemed very silly. It assumes McCain is something other than a conservative (his voting record says he is), as it suggests that the views of a guest must align with the views of his host. Falwell effectively addressed the odd controversy in a New York Times commentary headlined “An Invitation, Not an Endorsement.” But he did say: “Mr. McCain is the front-runner for the nomination and is the kind of conservative candidate whom I would have little trouble supporting.”
