Not that I can imagine that sight appealing to anyone, but nonetheless, kudos to the Senator for knowing where to draw the line.

There's a limit to how far John McCain will go to win over young voters. Wearing a dress on national television crosses that line.

The 71-year-old grandfather and Republican presidential contender said he hopes to use his appearance this week on "Saturday Night Live" to reach out for the youth vote.

"I think Senator Obama has done a very good job with young voters; we have to do a good job as well," McCain said, referring to the leading Democratic presidential contender, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.

McCain said he expects the show's writers to decide how to best use him, but he declared there will be no reprise of the cross-dressing appearance once made by former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.

"Ah, no," the Navy veteran said when asked if he would agree to wear a dress.
