    They did.

    That's really cool though. I didn't know the term "maverick" came from a real family.

    I have been wondering why being a "Maverick" is assumed a positive thing. Invading countries without the support of the international community is a good example of Maverick leadership. In common definition of the term, it brings to mind a disregard for structure and rules, stubbornness, and unpredictability. With the world going down the tubes in many ways, I think people want stability and more systematic problem solving techniques.

    Maverick is a man's man. If we can't have a cowboy, we might as well have a maverick.

    Yeah, he still fits what the word's meaning has become, whether the family likes his politics or not.

    With the "McCain voted with Bush 91% of the time" turning out to be a huge talking point for the Dems, I don't blame McCain's side for clinging to the word Maverick.
