Not that any of you wonderful readers would dream of voting for McCain anyway...

But just thought you should know. In terms of being a loyal and true husband McCain fails miserably.
It seems that he took up with his current wife, Cindy, back in 1980 while still married to his first wife Carol. Carol's story is very sad. In a nutshell, Carol, a leggy swimsuit model, was in a terrible car accident while McCain was a prisoner of war in Vietnam. She didn't want to make his troubles there even worse, so she wouldn't allow the army to tell McCain about her accident.
She had to have many surgeries and her legs were shortened, and she put on quite a bit of weight. When McCain finally came home he was shocked and disheartened to see his model wife look nothing like how he remembered. He started to cheat on her, and met, courted, and fell in love with Cindy McCain (his current wife) all while still married to Carol.
You can read all of the details here ...but it seems to me that John McCain is not at all virtuous when it comes to his treatment of of his first wife...maybe I'm being too hard on him?
