McCain says he'll vote against Bernanke
In a statement, McCain said he appreciated Bernanke's service but "I believe that he must be held accountable for many of the decisions that contributed to our financial meltdown."

"Therefore, I plan to oppose Chairman Ben Bernanke's confirmation for a new term as Federal Reserve chairman," he said.

McCain, who is up for re-election this year in his home state of Arizona, had been leaning against Bernanke, who is facing a tight Senate vote on his confirmation but seems likely to be approved.

to the financial meltdown. And thanks for introducing Sarah Palin to the world. Asswipe.
