Sen. John McCain swung through Florida last week, taking time for a boat tour of the Everglades on Friday. The Obama campaign promptly criticized McCain for his opposition last year to a water bill that included major funding for Everglades restoration. McCain said he would have supported a stand-alone Everglades bill, but the broader water bill was chockful of pork. “I am in favor of doing whatever’s necessary to save the Everglades,” McCain said. “But I will not vote for bills that have projects and other things on them that have not gone through the proper scrutiny.” Florida Gov. Charlie Crist (R), an eco-minded politician who may be a contender for McCain’s veep spot, was reassured: “I am sure he supports the Everglades and the restoration of the national park.”
