A few months ago, John McCain launched a very good web ad, featuring footage of Winston Churchill. Today in Politico, Gary Bauer makes the case that at the ripe old age of 76, Winston Churchill,
"... resolved a series of international crises inherited from his predecessor. He squelched rebellions in Kenya and Malaya and helped topple a corrupt regime in Iran. He renewed his nation’s “special relationship” with the United States and alerted the world to Soviet imperialist expansion. All of which helped make Churchill, according to a 2001 survey of his countrymen, the Greatest Briton.
All of which, too, Churchill accomplished after the age of 76, four years older than John McCain will be come Inauguration."
