Raspberries for McCain

The week's news at a glance.

New York City

After getting a warm reception for his commencement speech at conservative Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., Arizona Sen. John McCain last week delivered a similar address to students in New York City. This time, though, the audience was not as polite. At a ceremony in Madison Square Garden for graduates of the liberal New School, students heckled the presidential hopeful, while dozens of students and faculty members turned their backs while he spoke. “I’ve got to say,” McCain later remarked, “that maybe the students at the New School could learn a lesson in courtesy from the students at Liberty.” Some political analysts suggested McCain had sought out a hostile audience, to score points with the GOP’s conservative base.
