After John McCain mentioned that he had the bracelet commemorating a fallen soldier in Iraq, Barack Obama said, “I have a bracelet, too. From the mother of Sgt. Ryan David Jopek. Given to me by her mother in Green Bay. And she told me can you make sure that another mother isn’t going through what I’m going through.”
And what else did she tell him?
“She had told me in an email that she had asked, actually asked Mr. Obama to not wear the bracelet any more at any of his public appearances.”
