I could swear that John McCain left an ailing wife, who waited patiently for six years for him to return to the USA, after her multiple surgeries.
I could swear that while his wife was trying to heal, he had a few affairs, but the one that stuck was with a multi-millionaire heiress who didn't trust him enough to co-mingle her own assets with his.
I could swear the heiress bought him a house so that he could run in a certain Congressional District. I could swear that his first wife was "in shock" when McCain threw his wife over the side and pushed for a divorce.
I could swear that at various points John McCain has palled around with Dick Cheney and Charles Keating, sincere palling, to the extent that he gladly flew private jets with both, and was glad for his wife to invest in a shopping center with Keating. I could swear all these things are irrefutably true, unlike Palin's hasty charge, based on one newspaper report she quoted erroneously, yesterday.
But I'd like this race to be about where America is going, not the places where the candidates have been.
