Welcome to Election 2008.
Sen John McCain (R-AZ) is denying reports in the New York Times and Washington Post suggesting he had a romantic relationship with a woman lobbyist in 2000.
Sen McCain, the likely GOP Presidential nominee, described the woman, Vicki Iseman (pictured), simply as "a friend."
''I'm very disappointed in the article. It's not true,'' the likely Republican presidential nominee said as his wife, Cindy, stood beside him during a news conference called to address the matter.
But really, after an entire administration getting us into a war over WMDs that never existed and and "imminent threat" that never materialized -- sex scandals seem so quaint.
