Does McCain's POW Experience Translate into Presidential Qualities?

Hosted by

The one seemingly untouchable topic in this year's presidential campaign is whether John McCain's naval record and his years as a POW in Vietnam are relevant to his qualifications as president. Did that suffering 40 years ago give him the courage required to meet presidential challenges or did the experience leave scars that could come back to haunt him? Was it simply a profound experience that has nothing to do with the requirements of the highest office in the country? Also, Palin meets the press, Obama fights back and Texans hunker down as Hurricane Ike heads for the Gulf Coast.  Judy Muller guest hosts.
