Bob Corker and the McCain Effect: 

"It's not an urban myth. It's just a fact."

So far Tennessee's junior senator has held on to his own mild-mannered ways, but an appearance in Memphis this week revealed some other traits and beliefs Corker has come to share with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
