McCain Begins Preliminary White House Run

From ABC News:
His party may have taken "a thumpin'," in the words of President Bush, but ABC News has learned that Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and his political team have decided it's full steam ahead for his 2008 presidential campaign though he has yet to make the final, official decision.

Sources close to McCain say on Wednesday in Phoenix, he and a half dozen of his top aides huddled and decided to proceed more formally with his quest for the White House.

McCain joins Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack (D-IA) among candidates who have either announced or formed exploratory committees.
