Did you see the neato John McCain story in Slate?? Well worth your time.
It is remarkable these little pictures we sometimes get of the person behind the personage. Nasty ol’ Joe Liberman will not drive to a vote on the Sabbath. Ike was a private pilot, but Mamie made him give it up. Jack and Bobby Kennedy used to play wicked games of Diplomacy.
It would seem to me that both authors linked here have an agenda, so I’m reading them with a little skepticism. Sorry. The timing is off. They both could be 100% gospel truth. But during the campaigns, I sort these types of articles into my “bullshit” pile, regardless of merit.
