The Forgotten McCain Angle

I don’t have time at the moment to present my manifesto on this election and its place in the culture wars, but for now I just want to ask: why have the tributes to McCain failed to mention one of the most interesting and commendable aspects of his career, that being his involvement in normalizing relations with Vietnam? It’s the rhetorical and moral capstone to the whole POW narrative, and ought to be cited more frequently by his supporters as an indication of his strength of character.
