John McCain, as a public figure, has been defined by his failures:
- As a POW because of his own wreckless stupidity,
- As a failed husband, in his wife’s time of need.
- As a beaten presidential candidate in his own parties primary
- As a thrashed, pathetic image of desperation, in a loss to a Democratic, educated, confident black man.
His failures have defined him and revealed his hidden inner demons with every loss. Those demons are now who he is.
