Fighting your own leaders

Some people just need it.

From cnn.com:

"The fact is she'll do fine tonight. She has experience, talent, leadership. She has great inner strength. She has an ability to lead that's been proven, taken on her own party," [McCain] said. "Joe Biden and Barack Obama have never taken on the leaders of their party on any issue. She's stood up for what's right for the people of Alaska. And she will stand up for what's right for America."


I'm assuming he's right. I don't really feel like looking through congressional records to check, but I'll take him at his word that Obama and Biden have never stood up against the leaders of their party. Then again, the United States Marines have never stood up against the Navy Seals either. Why?
Because they're on the same freakin' side.

The only time you need to fight your own leaders is when they start running you into the ground. I understand why McCain has "taken on" his own party. I also understand why Obama and Biden haven't.
