This article reports on the sour relations between Sen. John McCain of Arizona and the prominent Republican fund-raiser and lobbyist, Grover Norquist. There has been enmity between the two men since the 1990s when McCain began his movement for campaign finance reform, an anathema to Norquist. The personal acrimony between the two had been heated. However, in 2005-06, the author detected a decrease in animosity which he ascribes to McCain's possible run for the presidency in 2008.
