Let’s talk about ambition Senator John McCain; yours to be exact.
After coming home a celebrity from being a POW during the Vietnam War, your extramarital affairs caused you and your first wife to break up. You chose to go after the money instead – Cindy Lou Hensley’s. Her estate is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions.
