NO! How the hell milquetoast candidate McCain ever got past the nomination process is far beyond me! This was anality and magical thinking by the GOP OLD WHITE MEN CONTINGENT AT ITS HEIGHT!
There was no way McCain was going to win as he mealy mouthed his way through all issues, even admitted me did not possess the tools to handle the economic recession that had just befallen us on the eve of the 2008 election! What a fool!
POW nad all of that? That was then. This is NOW! The two are not necessarily realted in any way shape or form. One and whatever one did to endure it, etc., does not automatically mean that McCain is entitled to the POTUS-ship!
