Being a successful commander-in-chief requires objective thinking, of which McCain probably isn’t capable. His service to his nation, both in the military and out, has been honorable, notwithstanding his imprudent criticism of a president in his own party during a war. He’s only following his heart, one assumes. But it takes more than heart to win.
