Is it that he might have screwed around on his wife? Is it that he was getting a little something in his Senate Office? I don’t think that either of these is a story. Then again I am not what Pundits would call a “values voter.” I, of course beg to differ on who is a values voter. One of my values is that some guy cheating on his wife is not my business. I believe we should give the McCains some privacy on this issue.
So, since I really do not want to know what John McCain does with his anatomy below his belt, what is the real issue for me? I want to know what John might have given to the industry this woman represented. If his votes cannot be called into question then, as far as I am concerned, the issue goes away. I may wonder about John’ judgment in getting involved with someone who could make us question his voting record. Then again, I cannot expect him not to form friendships with people he sees all the time.
At this point I do not know if there is really a story here. Let’s look at the voting record and find out.
On another note, I would not want to be John McCain when he talks to his wife. I will also be interested to see how the “values voter” bends over backward to forgive McCain for his alleged sexual transgression, while still seething over exactly the same behavior from Bill Clinton.
