"It's not because John McCain doesn't care" about the "anxiety" amongst Americans, Senator Obama said in his August 28th nomination speech at the end of the Democratic National Convention. "It's because John McCain doesn't get it."
A perceived "not getting it" on the part of Senator McCain has been a popular subject for Obama on the campaign trail. "Obviously, I disagree," McCain's daughter Meghan told NBC's Meredith Vieira. "Obviously I think my father gets it more than anyone."
"I have two brothers serving in the military--one that's about to redeploy to Iraq," she went on. "My father's obviously a famous war hero. No one knows what war is like other than my family, period."
