Summary: A fellow former P.O.W. voices his concerns about whether that status necessarily qualifies McCain for president.
Script of "Phillip Butler" (TV)
(Text on screen: Former P.O.W. with John McCain)
PHILLIP BUTLER: Hell, I'm 70 years old and I've lived through being a prisoner of war, I'm going to tell it like it is.
(Text on screen: A Fellow POW on John McCain)
I think I can say with authority that the prisoner of war experience is not a good prerequisite for a president of the United States.
PHILLIP BUTLER [v/o]: He was well-known as a very volatile guy, and he would blow up and go off like a Roman candle.
PHILLIP BUTLER: John McCain is not somebody that I would like to see with his finger near the red button.
