WHAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE ON JOHN MCCAIN?
“I cannot claim that the circumstances of our lives are similar in every respect,” Mr. McCain told an exuberant crowd packed into an upstairs room of the Martin County Courthouse, which had been painted and freshened up with flowers for the occasion. “I’m not the son of a coal miner. I wasn’t raised by a family that made its living from the land or toiled in a mill or worked in the local schools or health clinic. I was raised in the United States Navy, and after my own naval career, I became a politician. My work isn’t as hard as yours.”
But Mr. McCain told the crowd that “you are my compatriots,” and added, “that means more to me than almost any other association.”
