As per The New York Times:

“I make them as quickly as I can, quicker than the other fellow, if I can,” Mr. McCain wrote, with his top adviser Mark Salter, in his 2002 book, Worth the Fighting For. “Often my haste is a mistake, but I live with the consequences without complaint.”

I’m an impulsive decision-maker myself. If I wasn’t to some extent willing to roll down the road less traveled, I’d never have become a professional blogger. And indeed I take it that this is the core of truth at the heart of the “maverick” narrative — not so much a description of John McCain’s political views but of his approach to life.
