What Does This Say About McCain?

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

This has been nagging at me for a while. Karl Rove this morning told yet another variation on the story of the McCains’ adoption of their daughter Bridget. In his version, like the others I’ve heard, Cindy didn’t tell John in advance that she was bringing this child back with her from abroad. She just did it, a fact which usually gets a hardy-har-har from friendly audiences.

In Rove’s version today, Cindy specifically told someone else not to tell John in advance. The point of Rove’s story was that John McCain needs to reveal more of himself publicly so that voters can see the kind of character he has.

Am I the only one who finds that story to be a poor reflection on Cindy, John, and their marriage?
