Semana de Bio-Tour para McCain














Maeve Reston nos da detalles del anunciado tour biográfico que el Senador John McCain emprenderá esta próxima semana por distintas localizaciones que tienen alguna significación en su historia vital. Visitará diferentes ciudades en media docena de estados: empezará el lunes en Mississippi, seguirá en Virginia, Maryland, Florida, y Tennessee, para cerrar el sábado en Arizona. Todo para promocionar la genuina historia americana que es la vida del candidato. Life-story tour will show voters the real McCain

(...) McCain will attend an air show Monday near Meridian, Miss., at McCain Field, which was named for his grandfather, an admiral. His speech there will outline his family's military service. McCain was stationed in the area as a flight instructor.

The Arizona senator will hold a town hall meeting Tuesday at Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Va., where his first-year antics and disregard for the rules earned him the title of "worst rat."

On Wednesday, he will make stops near the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., where he graduated fifth from the bottom of his class, and in Pensacola, Fla., where he attended flight school and drove a red Corvette -- spending most of his free hours "at bars and beach parties," according to one of his memoirs.

During a stop Thursday in Jacksonville, Fla., where McCain's first wife and young children lived while he was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam, he is expected to emphasize the importance of service and what he views as the need to increase the Army and Marine Corps.

He plans to stop Friday in Memphis for a speech marking the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., who was killed when McCain was imprisoned. McCain will end the tour next Saturday in Arizona, where he began his political career. (...)
