McCain has had five skin cancers, including a growth that was removed in February of this year, but there is no sign any of the cancers have recurred.I personally would have preferred candor to stalling tactics, or stories about how it was necessary to assemble his doctors to conduct a press conference before records could be released. Especially if you don't hold such a press conference. But overall, it's good news.
