I do not want to even imagine the horrific experience he had as a POW. I am thankful that he survived. I also wonder if his demons are from his own devices -- what do you think?
UPDATE: McCain Gets Cantankerous Reception at Commencement
NEW YORK (AP) -- Senator John McCain of Arizona received a cantankerous reception during his appearance at the New School commencement Friday, where dozens of faculty members and students turned their backs and raised signs in protest and a distinguished student speaker pointedly mocked him as he sat silently nearby.
Senator John McCain, the keynote speaker at the New School University graduation, was received with jeers, boos and insults.
The historically liberal university has been roiled in controversy in recent weeks over the selection of McCain, a conservative Republican and likely 2008 presidential candidate, to deliver the commencement address.
Some 1,200 students and faculty signed petitions asking the university president, former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, to rescind the invitation. Petitioners said McCain's support for the Iraq war and opposition to gay rights and legal abortion do not keep with the prevailing views on campus.
