A Reason to Like John McCain
As you know, I'm no fan of John McCain. But, like most people, McCain is neither savior nor Satan. I was pleased to see that McCain contributed the foreword to Buck Compton's new book, "Call of Duty".
Buck Compton, as some of you may know, was a member of "Easy Company", the parachute infantry company immortalized in Stephen Ambrose's book "Band of Brothers". What you may not know is that Compton also played baseball with Jackie Robinson, played football in the Rose Bowl, prosecuted Sirhan Sirhan for the murder of Robert Kennedy and was appointed to the California Appeals Court by none other than Ronald Reagan. His is clearly a life well (and interestingly) led.
The fact that a man like Compton would see McCain as fit to contribute to his book makes me think a whole lot more of McCain. Let's just say that Compton's endorsement means more than Mitt Romney's vote ;-)
