If you read McCain's full statement on TPM, it seems arguably reasonable. Before I was convinced it's reasonable, I'd like to hear a few examples of interrogation techniques that fall somewhere between the permitted practices in the Army Field Manual, and waterboarding (which he still considers torture). If there are multiple reasonable examples, than I can accept that he still has a consistent opinion.

Even if you grant that, though, it's still a bad vote if you ask me. Perfect is the enemy of good, and I doubt McCain's theoretical ideal bill is going to come up for a vote any time soon. Then again, GWB is gonna veto this anyway, so McCain has some leeway to make a stand on whatever policy he wants. I guess he'd rather explain his vote to us, than explain a vote the other way to the Republican base.
