Default McCain lingers for veterans along ropelines

Quote:

MOSINEE, Wis. - John McCain hurried along the edge of the crowd, using both hands to reach across metal barriers and make fleeting contact with supporters. He had just finished one rally, and his plane was waiting to ferry him to the next.

Then he spotted a veteran wearing a "Marine" cap. McCain slowed, then stopped.

"Thank you for your service," McCain told the man.

A former Navy pilot and Vietnam prisoner of war, McCain will always make time for a fellow veteran.

Working the "ropeline" the fence or security barricade that separates a candidate from the crowd is part of the rhythm of any presidential campaign. Some candidates are energized by the experience; others view it as a chore.
The rest of the article is some kind of hacked up opinion, but this part of it makes me want to shake the old man (McCain) and ak him why the heck he didn't go for Romney or Guliani ...or... anybody but a boy named Sue...
Geezie Laweezie. I respect and honor the old dog and I think he is a good man and would have brought the Republican party back to an honorable and natural place. A place it should be; not with the wackos and weirdos and pocket stuffers.
What a dumb thing he did. I forgive him, but I still won't vote for him. And seeing him with vets like this and knowing, in my heart, he is a good man who loves his country, that makes me sad.
I am not satisfied with the Republican party as it is today. But maybe this big mistake will help retrace the Grand Old Party to the party that is right.
