Like many political conservatives, I have had my reservations about John McCain, to say the least. But as I learn more about the man, I must say that I am deeply impressed by reports of his integrity, particularly those coming not from Mr. McCain himself (who is nobly reticent about telling his own stories), but from people who knew him at the Hanoi Hilton. Contrasted against John Kerry's endless prattle about his own wartime valor, Here is one such story, related by Karl Rove in the Wall Street Journal. Very impressive, and in need of telling.
Mr. McCain's biography has me convinced that the man is fit for the job of President, if only because he is not governed by a need for acclamation.
