I don’t care about McCain’s girlfriends of eight years ago. What is most important is his relationship with a lobbyist. It was eight years ago, but what was happening between eight years ago and now? If she represents the military industrial interests then there can be some problems here, and McCain’s relationship with Bush sir and jr seems to be a little too tight. His “wife” can and will take care of McCain and the girlfriend! However the ethics committee needs to look into this issue of the lobbyist.

While I'm certainly no fan of McCain, this story is absolutely unbelievable -- crusty old man McCain having an affair? At 71 years old? Get real.

I have not gotten home yet, are any of the other networks talking about it?
Like NBC, ABC and CBS?

I read the story and have watched some discussion. This thing is flat-out weird. First off, it's more than 8 years old. Secondly, the NYT contacted McCain and the lady a while back, they answered the Times' questions and got lawyers, etc. The Times dropped it. Now it suddenly appears again and the sources are anonymous.

I dunno. It seems really fishy.

I give this about as much credit as the reported gay relationship Obama is accused of in college.There is even the guy that claims it on You tube.

Cheaters cheat. He did it to his first wife, why would people not expect that same behavior again. However, in this case, it is not infidelity true or not that bothers me, since his second wife was instrumental in the break up of his first wife's marriage, it is the fact that someone who was part of the Keating 5 would be so reckless as to deal with a lobbyist in this way.
