McCain is against contraception
I know that a lot of folks thought this clip of McCain rubbing his face rather than addressing the question of birth control was amusing, but it really isn't when you think about the possibility of him becoming the president. McCain voted against a bill that would have required health plans to cover birth control for women if it also covered drugs like Viagra for men. He's voted against contraception for women for 20 years. But he doesn't remember and apparently he doesn't care enough about women's issues to even have an answer ready for the press while he is campaigning. This is the problem with an elderly man running for president.
This is as good an issue to bring up to anyone you meet, especially a woman, who is thinking of voting for him. In this economy and in these hard financial times, this is a very important issue.
