Sen. John McCain offers us a good example in one respect. Not in how to run a presidential campaign. Not in how to select a Vice Presidential running mate. Not in how to influence critical legislation in an economic crisis.
But, he’s 72 and still working – working probably harder than he ever has. And in these times, that is truly leading by example. With our 401Ks now worth less than the money we put in, and as McCain notes Social Security and MediCare in worse shape than ever, retirement is looking like – well, not so much.
