"McCain still considering flip-flop on Alaska Refuge drilling."

Jonathan Martin notes that John McCain “isn’t totally closing the door on dropping his opposition to drilling in ANWR.” In an interview with the Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes, McCain said he continues to examine whether to endorse drilling in the Alaska Refuge. McCain earlier said he’s “more than happy” to consider flip-flopping on Alaskan oil drilling, but then quickly back-tracked, reiterating his position that the Refuge “is a pristine place and if they found oil in the Grand Canyon, I don’t think I’d drill in the Grand Canyon.”
