In a Memorial Day address in Albuquerque, McCain defends his opposition to Sen. Webb’s GI bill:
“It would be easier politically for me to have joined Senator Webb in offering his legislation.”

Adds: “I take a backseat to no one in my affection, respect and devotion to veterans.” Read his full speech.
