(CNN) – When President Obama delivers the commencement address at the U.S. Naval Academy on Friday, he will have a former presidential candidate and proud parent of one of the graduates in attendance.
John Sidney McCain IV, more commonly known as "Jack," will become the fourth McCain to graduate from the Annapolis, Maryland, service academy and the fourth with the same name.
About mid-day at the academy's commissioning and graduation ceremony, McCain will receive a Bachelor of Science degree, take the oath of office and be commissioned as an ensign in the U.S. Navy 103 years after his great-grandfather did the same.

McCain will be sitting in the audience having an ill-concealed apoplectic fit; his wife will consume/steal more meds than her usual daily dosage; the only cool one there will be his daughter Meghan; and she'll be trying to get Obama's autograph! All in all NOT a banner day for Senator John McShame.
My gosh... can't you even let a happy and proud occasion go by without slinging mud? Even the most fervently partisan posters on this topic said nice things. 4 generations of military service – does that mean nothing to youi?
Oh, to be in the graduating class and have to sit through another BS speech by Obama. Thank God I'm not in Annapolis.
All my family has truly appreciate for John McCain's four decendants
have serviced for America. Could you please accept our respect from
buttom our heart ?
In other news...all 100 Senators will be in the same room together at the same time at some point in the near future...the sky is blue...the world is round....water is wet.
Libs aren't anti military. They are aniti "unneed wars".
Dumb cons just don't get it.
What a copout CNN for closing the comments on the GOP's new ad. People should be allowed to publicly express their disgust with it.

Doesn't being Commander in Chief kind of make him a military person? Just because he didn't serve is no reason to disparage the man.

Seriously? The "illegitimate Kenyan-born" train not only left the station months ago, it derailed. Wake up, already.
