Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), being interviewed on MS-NBC a minute ago
on why he's so impressed with Sarah Palin (although he's never met
her) and so unimpressed with Barack Obama, who he sees as a captive
of special interests:

"Sen. McCain has always pushed the status quo and I believe Gov.
Palin will do the same."

Presumably, he meant 'pushed against' rather than 'promoted'.
