    since I don't have any handy.  This is just anecdotal for my own family, and many others I know.  I would be shocked if it was as low as 30%, and even if it was, that would mean most people at least have a friend whose family is affected in this way.

    It's not the specific numbers that are important.  It's making sure that we're not playing into their hands by setting ourselves up or backlash.  

    I get the feeling I wouldn't like Cindy McCain personally, and stealing drugs from a charity is wretched, but this is not a winning political scandal to bring up.

      I know you dramatize it and obviously it reflects your own experience. I thought that my comment would help de-dramatize it. I have known very little if zero among many I know. But I understand that America is so huge and so diversified.

      Regardless of the statistics, we both agree that it is a personal issue of McCain and it is a weak point for the campaign.
