McCain supports U.S.--sponsored mediation

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) made more comments on the ouster of Honduran President Manuel Zelaya today, saying that he supports the U.S. -- backed mediation effort lead by Costa Rican President Oscar Arias.

The 2008 GOP presidential nominee tweeted:
Met with Honduran political leaders -- President Arias is the right man to resolve this crisis.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with Zelaya yesterday in D.C. and agreed to a political reconciliation process. President Barack Obama had previously condemned the military coup which occurred on June 28.

Yesterday, McCain challenged the administration's position on Zelaya himself. Today, he's lauding the prospects of mediation with Arias, a plan that emerged from Clinton's meeting with Zelaya yesterday. But the problem-solver seems to be a universally accepted choice, with Honduras' interim president Roberto Micheletti going along with the plan for talks as well.
