Dowd's essay accurately outlines how the McCain's camp may be over playing the POW card.
While it is generous that Dowd's Mom gives McCain a free pass for cheating on wife number one after his captivity. I wonder how McCain behaved before he was imprisoned.
By McCain's own admission, he did whatever he wanted to do.
The MSM media seems to forget how the Bush campaign inferred how this very captivity may have affected McCain's judgement.
Guiliani campaigned on the 9-11 tragedy and we know how well that worked.
Continuing to play the POW card may not serve the senior McCain well.
