McCain's Senior Aide Keeps It Real

Mark Salter, senior aide to John McCain, known for his gruff demeanor, was practically giddy this morning on the campaign plane. Salter, the tempo of his voice increasing with each word, smiled as he described his own mood. “A little hard getting out of bed,” he said, quickly adding: “But eight cups of coffee and a half a pack of cigarettes later, I’m feeling pretty good myself.” When asked how he was planning to get through the marathon seven-state day, Salter quipped: “Crystal meth. Me, personally, that’s how I’m going to do it.” (WSJ)
