Cosmo - McQuaid in 2006: "Can The Nation Afford A President McCain?

Today Drudge Report is reporting that the Union Leader will endorse John McCain. We did a quick google search and discover that The UL's publisher hasn't always been McCain's biggest fan.
In 2000, Joe McQuaid publisher of The Union Leader, called John McCain "The most liberal guy on the Republican side."

Then in a September 2006 article, McQuaid said, "in the midst of the most difficult and challenging war we have ever faced, can the nation afford a President McCain?" He went on to add "New Hampshire citizens must question why they should support him [McCain] for President."
