He backed Republican presidential nominee John McCain in 2008, angering many of his former Democratic colleagues by endorsing him at the Republican National Convention. John McCain and Lindsey Graham is the Democratic base's equivalent of a Tea Party candidate hosting a Planned Parenthood fundraiser.
