NICK Anderson's March 6 cartoon of Sen. John McCain was an insult to a great American regardless of whether you support his bid for the presidency. McCain's overtures to the religious right of the GOP are not demeaning to him in any way. He spent seven years in a North Vietnamese prison camp without compromising his values. I wonder how long Mr. Anderson would have lasted in the "Hanoi Hilton. " Tom O'Neill, Philadelphia

U.S. Sen. John McCain weighed into a local congressional race yesterday as he endorsed another convert to campaign-finance reform. The onetime insurgent Republican presidential candidate came to Philadelphia for a speaking engagement at the University of Pennsylvania, and to help excite potential contributors to the congressional campaign of State Sen. Stewart J. Greenleaf of Montgomery County. McCain appeared with Greenleaf outside Barnes & Noble Booksellers at 1805 Walnut St. in mid-afternoon, and then went inside to sign copies of his best-selling memoir, Faith of My Fathers.

U.S. Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) will make several public appearances in Philadelphia today. McCain, who recently folded his challenge to Texas Gov. George W. Bush for the GOP presidential nomination, will visit the University of Pennsylvania campus. He will address a convention of politically inclined young people called "We the Future 2000: The Meeting of a Generation. " The town-hall meeting, at 12:15 p.m. at the Penn Tower Hotel, will launch three days of events aimed at inspiring young people to take leadership roles in solving political, economic and social problems.

Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) highlighted his foreign-policy differences with Republican presidential front-runner George W. Bush yesterday by outlining a highly detailed agenda and drawing attention to his experience in international affairs. As the six-man Republican field prepares to square off today in New Hampshire for the first fully attended GOP debate, McCain's speech was heavy on what critics say Bush's foreign-policy address last week lacked - specifics in dealing with Russia, China, the Middle East and rogue nations, such as Iraq.

Underdog presidential candidates invariably come up with implausible theories about where they are going to find votes. They claim to have special appeal to Amway salesmen or Notre Dame graduates, sorority sisters or baseball fans, computer mavens or angry white males. So earlier this year, when Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) said he was counting on the votes of veterans in the primaries, I was skeptical. Silly me. I've just finished McCain's new memoir, Faith of My Fathers, and I can't imagine how any Republican who has performed military service - or has merely lived through war - can avoid giving him at least a measure of consideration.

SEN. McCAIN has chosen Gov. Palin, who is clearly unprepared to be the vice president during such a turbulent, chaotic, and pivotal time. So it's vital that voters know the facts about McCain's health and demand that his medical records be fully released. We have yet to see a full, public release of McCain's medical records. A "release" in May was restricted to about 20 reporters, and they were allowed only three hours to review 1,173 pages. They were not allowed to make copies, consult with medical experts or use cell phones or have Internet access during their review.

Gov. Ridge is firmly in George W. Bush's corner. So are nearly all of Pennsylvania's other top Republicans. But they will be glued to the tube tonight, hedging their bets and watching the votes get counted in New York, California and other Super Tuesday primary states. That's because if Arizona Sen. John McCain somehow emerges staggered but still standing as a Republican candidate, Pennsylvania's April 4 presidential primary just might become a battleground. "Sen. McCain could definitely remain in contention by the time of the Pennsylvania primary," said Sen. Arlen Specter (R., Pa.)

WASHINGTON - Syrian rebels battling the forces of President Bashar al-Assad must receive ammunition and heavy weapons to counter the regime's tanks and aircraft or it will be impossible for them to prevail, Sen. John McCain said days after he quietly slipped into Syria to meet with the opposition. "They just can't fight tanks with AK-47s," McCain said Friday in a telephone interview. The Republican lawmaker and 2008 presidential candidate made an unannounced visit to Syria on Monday, traveling across the border near Kilis, Turkey, and spending about two hours meeting with rebel leaders.

THANKS TO the media, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright has become a household name and a political hot potato for Sen. Barack Obama. And despite Obama's strong repudiation of Wright last week, the media's obsession with Wright's inflammatory comments will only continue to fan the flames of controversy. But at what point will the media start to give similar scrutiny to Sen. John McCain's association with John Hagee? Hagee, a Texas pastor and televangelist, endorsed McCain in February.

A Chinese Olympic leader sent a blunt message to Congress: Mind your own business. He Zhenliang, China's senior delegate on the International Olympic Committee, accused Sen. John McCain of meddling in Olympic affairs to advance his White House ambitions. "He knows nothing about Olympic Games," the official said of McCain. "He used this for his own political purpose. This is political interference. Let the IOC deal with our own affairs. " As the IOC's new reform commission wrapped up its first round of meetings in Lausanne, Switzerland, with moves toward democratic change, a backlash against U.S. politicians came to the fore.

Sen. John McCain stumped for Sen. Pat Toomey in Delaware County on Friday morning, praising Toomey as a leader on national security and veterans issues. In an appearance before about 100 supporters at the Folsom Veterans of Foreign Wars post, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee said Toomey is a critical ally of his in the Senate, and needs to win reelection for Republicans to hold their majority in the chamber. "I believe in this man," said McCain, of Arizona. "You have a workhorse in Washington.

Jake McCain was slowed in the early going of the nonleague contest Saturday afternoon against Bishop Shanahan with a slight case of dehydration. "The heat got to me a little bit and then I drank too much water on the sideline," the senior running back and middle linebacker said. Thankfully for Penn Charter, McCain was his usual bullish self down the stretch. He helped the injury- and illness-depleted Quakers put together a 19-play, 88-yard drive over the final 11 minutes of the game to run down the clock and turn back the Eagles, 19-12, in their first game at the school's new turf field.

Polls have cast a harsh light on his presidential chances, but Gov. Christie will try to win over early-primary state voters with a Jersey-tested tool: the town-hall meeting. Christie, who has held 134 such meetings in his home state, will hold two this week in New Hampshire, where he also plans to announce a national entitlement reform proposal. That subject dovetails with what Christie has framed at New Jersey town halls as confronting hard truths about the state's public worker pension system.

WASHINGTON - Americans are at a "tipping point" as it regards their monthly pay-TV bill and should be given the option of purchasing channels individually instead of as a bundle with hundreds of channels, Arizona Sen. John McCain told a Senate panel Tuesday. "I truly believe that a lot of Americans are fed up with their cable TV bills," said McCain, speaking to a Commerce subcommittee exploring the status of the TV and video industries in the United States. McCain was speaking to rally political support for the Television Consumer Freedom Act of 2013 that he proposed last week.

DES MOINES, IOWA - Lottery officials say that since nobody won the Powerball jackpot on Saturday, the top prize will now increase to about $425 million for the next drawing, the largest jackpot ever for the game. Iowa Lottery spokeswoman Mary Neubauer said that the jackpot for Wednesday's drawing could go even higher than the estimated $425 million because sales pick up in the days before record drawings. The previous top Powerball prize was $365 million, won in 2006 by ConAgra Foods Workers in Lincoln, Neb.

WASHINGTON - A trio of female firsts and three former GOP presidential contenders are among the first speakers disclosed for the Republican National Convention at the end of the month in Tampa, Fla. The convention schedule is packed with high-profile names to fire up divergent wings of the Republican Party, from social conservatives to fiscal hawks. They will speak before Mitt Romney accepts the presidential nomination. Convention leaders were not ready to announce the keynote speaker, a prime speaking slot that has the potential to catapult a rising member of the party to national prominence.

WASHINGTON - Republican Sen. John McCain on Wednesday strongly defended a longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton against unsubstantiated allegations that her family has ties to Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, repudiating charges leveled by another Republican, Rep. Michele Bachmann. In a speech on the Senate floor, McCain praised the work and patriotism of Huma Abedin, a State Department employee who has been a constant presence at Clinton's side. Without mentioning Bachmann by name, McCain assailed the attacks on Abedin, a Muslim, as an example of ignorance and fear that defames the spirit of the nation.

WASHINGTON - The United States can't count on Russia - a major arms supplier to Syria - to force President Bashar al-Assad from power, Sen. John McCain said Sunday, blaming President Obama for embracing a "feckless" foreign policy and punting tough decisions until after the fall election. It was a particularly sharp rebuke even for McCain (R., Ariz.), who as a longtime critic of Obama's war strategy hasn't pulled many punches. As the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, McCain's viewpoint on complex world events often finds its way into GOP election-year talking points.

QAA, Lebanon - Syrian refugees fleeing to neighboring Lebanon said Monday they feared they would be slaughtered in their homes as government forces hunted down opponents in a brutal offensive against the opposition stronghold of Homs. With world pressure at a peak in the boiling crisis, U.S. Sen. John McCain called for air strikes against Syria. He said the United States had a moral and strategic obligation to force out Assad and his loyalists. "The only realistic way to do so is with foreign airpower," McCain (R., Ariz.)
