Anyone who thinks McCain can put his country ahead of his own self interest, better hope he cares more about his mother country than he cared about the mother of his 3 children. When McCain was a prisoner in Hanoi, his wife swimsuit model wife Carol stayed faithful and raised 3 children for him. But she had the misfortune of a car accident which left her fairly crippled, and when John came home, he followed up on his torture-induced denunciation of his own country with a torturous betrayal of his now overweight wife. He began partying.
While Carol keeps mum about it even today, she has noted to his biographer that she wished he had wanted to turn 40 rather than 25. McCain’s divorce papers were delivered to Cindy’s (his current wife’s) house; he cohabitted with Carol during the first 9 months of his affair with Cindy, according to the Jedreport blog account.
These indescretions were almost 30 years old. McCain raised it,l however as his biggest moral failure on the Warren morality debate, but only danced around it as the failure of the marriage, and gave no details. CNN revived the issue about his affair in the McCain Revealed story aired on August 20, 2008. In that report, they noted that he had a secret and he had begun to cheat by 1977, when he moved to DC. He developed the political aspirations while he was dating this wealthy heiress. He even lied to his new lady about his age.
McCain admits “responsibility” but unlike Obama, shows no evidence of having done a moment of soul searching nor does he appear to have learned from his mistake. His recent cheating on the zone of silence is a minor incident, compared to how he treated Carol, but if we give him the reigns of our country, we can expect similar fealty to what he showed to Carol and to pastor Warren.
