The Ugly New McCain

NEW YORK (AP) — No one doubts she’s hard-driving. But she has never learned to drive, Barbara Walters reveals in her new memoir, “Audition.”

…snip…

And she allots six pages from the book’s 612 for a startling confession: Her “long and rocky affair” in the 1970s with politician who was married and — further upping the ante — an African American.
