    •  Ross Perot on McCain: Opportunist (1+ / 0-)

      Thanks for the link. The story there has an interesting quote from Ross Perot, who paid Carol McCain's medical bills after her crash:

      But Ross Perot, who paid her medical bills all those years ago, now believes that both Carol McCain and the American people have been taken in by a man who is unusually slick and cruel – even by the standards of modern politics.

      ‘McCain is the classic opportunist. He’s always reaching for attention and glory,’ he said.

      ‘After he came home, Carol walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a poster girl with big money from Arizona. And the rest is history.’
