Um, his quote speaks for itself. He is apologizing for the appearance of ethical misconduct, and thought that developing a close relationship with Keating was improper REGARDLESS OF ANY SPECIFIC LAWS BROKEN OR NOT. He has repeatedly said it wasnt a good time in his life. Again, whether he was found guilty of anything has no bearing on his quote. You probably shouldnt try defending someone whose morals are more elevated than yours. I mean if Mccain is man enough to admit he should have handled it differently, then why cant you? No, you just want to spin, spin, spin. I suspect youd be pro child molesting if it was in your parties political platform and try to find someone else to blame. You are really no better than partisan Democrats who insist Obama is above criticism. We get the leaders we deserve because of such unthinking attitudes.
