Smoking Obama

From one of today's emails:
"Much is made of McCain's age. Has anyone brought up the fact that Obama smokes and both of his parents died at an early age. Plus Biden has had two brain aneurysms which could have killed him. If they both died while in office that would leave Nancy Pelosi as president. I can't think of a better reason to vote for McCain & Palin."

McCain and tobacco have long been intertwined. He wrote in his autobiography that he was a heavy smoker and noted that he once dated the daughter of a North Carolina tobacco magnate. But at the urging of his second wife, Cindy, McCain quit smoking at the time of their marriage in 1980, according to friends.

Search the web for pictures of McCain smoking while prisoner in Vietnam and after returning to America. You can see the cigarettes in his hands and on a chair arm.

Hi Anon, I don't think he smokes now. Technically the danger decreases with time away from the cigs.
