Denny and da Dems
Dennis DeConcini, an old crony and onetime U.S. Senate seatmate of John McCain takes time to lash out at him for his intemperate judgment
Democrat DeConcini, an unrepentant liberal, is now a supporter of Sen. Barack Obama.
DeConcini is still promoting his political memoir, released in 2006 and co-written with Jack L. August Jr., titled Dennis DeConcini: From the Center of the Aisle.
He was a controversial figure during his 18 years in office, with longstanding family ties to mob boss Joe Bonanno. In addition to his role in the Keating Five, he reveled in being the controversial swing-vote on major issues. A willing carrier of Jimmy Carter’s water, his vote was the deciding one relinquishing U.S. control of the Panama Canal.
Even VP nominee Joe Biden has second thoughts about the Democrat ticket, but not Dennis DeConcini.
