    The North Vietnamese wanted to release him early because he was an admiral's son. McCain refused
    ... is the only thing for which I have any true and lasting regard for McCain.

    My husband served in Naval aviation during the same period and for years has said the same things about McCain many here have mentioned.

    He crashed more planes than anyone would have gotten another chance to do, he disobeyed orders which resulted in his being captured, and except for the one incident mentioned above, he maintained the same sense of arrogant entitlement throughout his entire adult life.

    He had a chance to do the right thing WRT torture, and he has taken to abandoning that principled position every time he judges it will be in his political interest to do so.

    I look forward to the day when there is no longer any reason to have this discussion.
