The Real McCain:

John McCain has not yet released his medical records to the public. McCain is 72 years old, and has been diagnosed with invasive melanoma. In May of this year, a small group of selected reporters were allowed to review 1,173 pages of McCain's medical records that covered only the last eight years, and were allowed only three hours to do so. John McCain's health is an issue of profound importance. We call on John McCain to issue a full, public disclosure of all of his medical records, available for the media and members of the general public to review.

You can sign the petition at The Real McCain to ask that McCain disclose his records properly. Granted, I'm not 72 years old, but I have had some fairly serious medical issues in my time and am the owner of a not insubstantial medical record myself. The very fact that his medical records for the last 8 years alone total over 1,000 pages gives me pause. It absolutely is in the public interest to know exactly what his health outlook is over the next four years.

Can you help us out?
