McCain says he's ready to work with Obama
by UPI

WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., says he's ready to work with President Barack Obama, the man who dashed his hopes for the White House last year.

From issues involving Afghanistan and Iraq to military procurement reform, McCain says he is ready to work with the White House, Politico reported. Last week, he had a breakfast meeting with Defense Secretary Robert Gates, appeared with the president at a White House media event and discussed how to squelch budget earmarks with Vice President Joe Biden.

"These are terrible, perilous times, so I will seek ways to work with the president of the United States," McCain in his interview with the Washington publication. "I don't want him to fail in his mission of restoring our economy."

But there is a limit to McCain's cooperation, Politico notes. He's still a member of the loyal opposition regarding the economy. He was his party's point man last month in opposing Obama's 4787 billion economic recovery plan and has been highly critical of the $410 billion omnibus spending bill under Senate consideration.

The Arizona Republican -- who often bucks his party's line -- also dismissed Obama's 2010 budget outline as "certainly not something I can support."

The Treasury's Department right now has "no clear message," McCain said. "They're just sort of lurching from one crisis to another, and that's the perception the American people have. ... Clearly, their policies are evolving."
