Why won’t John McCain release his medical records?

Posted on Updated on

The New York Times has the story. Lawrence K. Altman, M.D. writes, “At least three times since March 2007, campaign officials have told The New York Times that they would provide the detailed information about his current state of health, but they have not done so.” According to the article in 1999, one year before the election, he released 1,500 pages of medical records. So why has he refused to do the same thing in the last year? Has Senator McCain something to hide? After all, if he is elected president he will be the oldest president elected to a first term. It’s important for us to know that he is in great health before we cast a vote for him in November.
