John McCain's life experiences say more about the outlook that he carries to his campaign for the presidency than any scripted speech ever will. This is a son and grandson of admirals, veterans of the great world wars, and a scarred and decorated veteran of the Vietnam War; held and tortured for five and a half years after his bomber was shot down over Hanoi. He came home to launch a two-decade career in Congress, rising to positions of power and ultimately, in his second bid for the White House, claiming the nomination of the Republican Party. Should he win this election, McCain, at 72, will become the oldest American ever elected to a first term
