"The Mav" says he's cool with his wife's anti-DADT ad.
U.S. Senator John McCain says he's fine with his wife's participation in a star-studded ad, in which she bashes the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

McCain is one of the key figures holding up Congress' attempt to put an end to the policy. McCain has never said he opposes ending DADT, but says he wants to wait until the military completes its own study of the policy before ending it.

In the ad, released last week by the pro-gay-marriage group NOH8, Cindy McCain says "our political and religious leaders tell LGBT youth that they have no future...They can't serve our country openly."


She continues by saying "our government treats the LGBT community as second-class citizens."

Clearly, she's talking about DADT -- the very policy her senator husband is responsible for prolonging.

Senator McCain, however, says he's fine with his wife's position -- even if it is directly opposed to his own.

During an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press," McCain was asked about the ad and said "to the moon, Cindy!" "I respect the First Amendment rights of every member of my family."

He also pointed out that his wife kinda backed off her stance in a "tweet" she posted the day after the ad was released.

In the "tweet," Cindy McCain says "I fully support the NOH8 campaign and all it stands for and am proud to be a part of it. But I stand by my husband's stance on DADT."

Umm, it's kinda one or the other, Cindy.

Hey, good for the McCain's! Sometimes it is okay to agree to disagree. I respect the fact that he doesn't expect his wife to follow him blindly. He treats her like an equal not a piece of property he owns. Hat's off.
