"I'm happy to say my son's grades are better, and he didn't have the demerits business that my husband did," Cindy McCain told The Associated Press in a phone interview. "He had demerits, but he didn't come through with quite so many as my husband did."
The McCain family declined to be interviewed Friday, but Jack's parents, Sen. McCain's mother, and all of Jack's siblings attended, except for his younger brother, James, who is on active duty in the Marine Corps. "They're both anxious to see each other so that Jack's brother has to salute him," Cindy McCain said.
A loud cheer erupted from the crowd of more then 30,000 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium when McCain's name was called late Friday morning.

This is the kind of bipartisanship this country needs. Thanks for making my day. Cudos to Jack McCain on his graduation and to President Obama for his graciousness.
