A Class Act

There's an article in today's New York Times that's worth the read. John McCain's son is a Marine who recently returned from a tour in Iraq. The McCains have tried very hard to keep this quiet (which makes me wonder why I am even posting this). In fact, the McCains asked the Times not to publish the article.

At one of the New Hampshire debates, McC was asked a question by a woman who had lost her brother to an IED in Iraq. Later, McC and his son, who at the time was days away from leaving for his tour in Anbar, visited her at her home without the presence of any reporters or cameras. What a visit that must have been.

In yet another class act, Cindy McCain arranged for a special visit to her son right before he was to leave but he refused to see her bc. he thought he would be the recipient of special treatment that the other Marines in his unit could not share.
