From the Miami Herald:
John McCain will venture into the Everglades for the first time as a presidential candidate Friday, an obligatory rite of passage for politicians shoring up their environmental credentials in a crucial state. But the Arizona senator opposed spending $2 billion on restoring the national park, siding with President Bush against Florida’s political establishment — including top Republican supporters Gov. Charlie Crist and Sen. Mel Martinez.
It took seven years after the state and federal governments closed a sweeping Everglades cleanup deal for Congress to authorize spending in 2007. McCain was campaigning and missed the vote, but he later urged his colleagues to let Bush’s veto of the measure stand…
McCain is planning to tour Everglades Safari Park on Friday and possibly take an airboat ride. ”He will discuss fulfilling our energy needs in balance with the goal of a cleaner environment,” said McCain spokesman Jeff Sadosky.
“It bothers me that Sen. McCain would vote against this funding and then come down and act like he’s a friend of the Everglades,” said Eric Draper, deputy policy director at Audubon of Florida.”

The Clintons’ so-called charitable enterprise has served as a vehicle to launder money and to enrich family friends.
In Havana, the past year has been marked by a parade of bold-faced names from the north — John Kerry reopening the United States Embassy; Andrew Cuomo bringing a delegation of American business leaders; celebrities ranging from Joe Torre, traveling on behalf of Major League Baseball to oversee an exhibition game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban national team, to Jimmy Buffett, said to be considering opening one of his Margaritaville restaurants there. All this culminated with a three-day trip in March by Barack Obama, the first American president to visit Cuba since Calvin Coolidge in 1928. But to those who know the city well, perhaps nothing said as much about the transformation of political relations between the United States and Cuba that began in December 2014 as a concert in the Tribuna Antiimperialista.
