John McCain on Families & Children
Republican nominee for President; Senior Senator (AZ)
My fear was that the McCain campaign would see this as an opportunity to emphasize a positive aspect about the Arizona senator. I was worried that McCain would stop ranting about negative campaigning and start describing how he and his wife came to adopt their daughter Bridget. On a trip to Mother Teresa's orphanage in Bangladesh, Cindy McCain was shown an infant who was going to die because the orphanage couldn't provide lifesaving surgery and care. The nuns urged Cindy to take the child home. She did, arriving at the Los Angeles airport to meet her husband with an infant in her arms. It would have been a powerful, positive moment if McCain had chosen to explain who he was, rather than assert he was a victim. People would have gained insight into his character & that of his wife. But he didn't do that; to this day, I don't know why.
The Christian Coalition was founded in 1989 by Dr. Pat Robertson to give Christians a voice in government. We represent millions of people of faith and enable them to have a strong, unified voice in the conversation we call democracy.
