Top McCain aide Charlie Black, in an interview with Fortune magazine. Black suggested that the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto helped McCain show off his readiness to be Commander-in-Chief and another terrorist attack would do the same. McCain later distanced himself from the remarks and Black said he regretted them. Black remains a senior McCain adviser.
