Why did the NY Times HOLD ONTO the McCain story until AFTER he locked up the Republican nomination?
only the NY Times can answer that question thoroughly.
and i can care less about whether or not mccain had any extramarital affair.
but according to wikipedia, he has admitted to a pattern of having extramartial affairs.
the real question is this: did he give this lobbyist, vicki islman, any political favors by her association with him?
that's the real issue here. not his integrity as far as his marriage goes, but his integrity as it relates to the office he held.
