The Washington Times writes that McCain has a big advantage over Obama when it comes to reaching across the aisle:
In fact, by several measures, Mr. McCain has been more likely to team up with Democrats than with members of his own party. Democrats made up 55 percent of his political partners over the last two Congresses, including on the tough issues of campaign finance and global warming. For Mr. Obama, Republicans were only 13 percent of his co-sponsors during his time in the Senate, and he had his biggest bipartisan successes on noncontroversial measures, such as issuing a postage stamp in honor of civil rights icon Rosa Parks.
Of course, we should ask the Obama campaign what they think of this analysis:
An Obama campaign spokesman declined to comment on The Times analysis.
Hype you can believe in.
