Schneider: McCain makes a surprising reference

(CNN) - Interesting that McCain brought up the issue of his own personal failings, in light of the recent John Edwards scandal. He never quite acknowledges it, but he is the one who mentioned it.

    McCain mention his x-wife out of guilt knowing he was a cheater!
    (with affairs before/after Cindy). Then that fling with a lobbyist came out but not persued. Just as Edwards, I bet there was more truth to it. But it seems the media is afraid of McCain and avoded reporting it. Call it a Senior Citizen's special treatment. Edwards denied it look where he's at? Confessing!

    Yes, he mentioned his failing in the shortest answer of the night. ZZZZoom over to the country's failings without saying that he cheated on his ill wife and left her, which even Edwards didn't do.

    Sorry, I am not impressed.

    Very interesting how CNN and the other news media has not dealt with this ugly issue of immorality and John McCain. He has no respect for marriage and family. Well too bad for present wife, "WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND". If he can easily cheat on his first wife with Cindy, he's bound to cheat on present wife. Who should trust a dishonest person. McCain is a habitual liar. He will have to answer for all his indiscretions. It's understandable why he not comfortable talking about his religious beliefs.
