NEW YORK TIMES: McCain Is Vocal on War, but Silent on Son’s Service:
Mr. McCain, now the presumptive Republican nominee, has staked his candidacy on the promise that American troops can bring stability to Iraq. What he almost never says is that one of them is his own son, who spent seven months patrolling Anbar Province and learned of his father’s New Hampshire victory in January while he was digging a stuck military vehicle out of the mud.
No doubt he can expect an endorsement from those antiwar types who have criticized the Bush daughters for not serving in Iraq.
