If the Democratic Party really admires “mavericks” so much—why don’t they have one? Since a brain tumor claimed Sen. John McCain’s life, Democrats have been effusive in their praise of his “maverick” style of politics. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called him one of the “few truly great people….a truth …
