Who Is John McCain?

More

We know what we know.

But next week, his campaign hopes that you will find out a lot of things you don't know... how the story of this Scots-Irish politician is the story of America.

Monday, McCain talks family history at the Naval Air Station north of Meridian, MS. Tuesday, he'll speak about education and his educational influences in Alexandria, VA. Wednesday is the major speech: he'll talk about service-to-country and partiotism at the Naval Academy and then, later in the day, in the cradle of Navy aviation in Pensacola, Fl. Thursday is Jacksonville, which is actually a very Navy town... he celebrates MLK day on Friday and then wraps up the tour in Prescott, Arizona on the very same spot where Barry Goldwater touched off his 1964 presidential campaign.
