Perhaps it's wrong to suggest the man uses his POW status to rebut any and all charges.

Perhaps I'm wrong that he's overplayed the POW card.

That's certainly the conclusion the McCain campaign's come to (http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/08/24/1288482.aspx):

[McCain's] advisors say if Obama gets "nastier" on that issue that opens the door for them. Advisors say the "Rezko deal stinks to the high heavens." They will be prepared to show McCain's "home" in Hanoi by using images of his cell. They claim they have not overused the POW element and insist they have "underused it."

From August 2004:

"I'm sick and tired of re-fighting the Vietnam War. And most importantly, I'm sick and tired of opening the wounds of the Vietnam War, which I've spent the last 30 years trying to heal."

McCain said Kerry may have opened himself to criticism by focusing on Vietnam. In his own primary campaign in 2000, McCain said, he didn't have to because everyone knew he'd been there. For Kerry, "it's clearly a tactical or strategic move" to shield him against "charges of being too liberal and soft on defense."Looks like another case of the 2008 McCain being completely different than the past McCain.

I don't think McCain's supporters would resort to that.

McCain himself just needs to distinguish himself from all this.

Perhaps by mentioning it right out of the gate in a national interview with Katie Couric.
