Today, McCain, who is all but officially on the presidential campaign trail, will deliver the commencement address at Falwell's evangelical Christian college. Though he's simply speaking to Liberty University graduates and their parents, the Arizona Republican's visit to the Lynchburg, Va., college is nonetheless freighted with broader political symbolism.
