McCain vs. McCain on 'don't ask, don't tell'

By Melissa Bell

In one corner, we have John McCain, the Republican senator who led GOP efforts to block a U.S. Senate vote on the DADT policy.

In the other corner we have Cindy McCain, rocking a short hairdo and joining a bevy of celebrities in a new NOH8 advertisement that basically asserts the government should share the blame for recent gay suicides.

Which side are you betting on? (Seeing as 70 percent of the military surveyed said a repeal would be no big deal, I'm going with the lady on this one.)

Update: For now, at least, I bet on the wrong side. The Supreme Court declined to end don't ask, don't tell.

Update II: I was really wrong.

I fully support the NOH8 campaign and all it stands for and am proud to be a part of it. But I stand by my husband's stance on DADT.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

It's been obvious for a long time who wears the pants in that family. And it ain't John.

It was pretty obvious during the 2008 campaign that Cindy McCain was fed up with the old curmudgeon.

And no wonder he abandoned his principles to win re-election; no way was he gonna spend the next six years in Arizona with his wife.
