McCain Says His Campaign Ads Are 'Not Lies'

McCain's confessional style about his religion has evolved during the presidential campaign as he has tried to attract evangelical voters. McCain had long been at odds with the leaders of the conservative evangelical wing of the Republican Party, but he has tried to mend those fences over the past year.

Co-host Elizabeth Hasselback – prefacing her question about abortion rights by saying, "You're not going to get softballs from me even though you have my vote –" drilled the presidential nominee on the whether he and Palin would work to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion.

"I think what we'd be doing is appointing or nominating justices to the United States Supreme Court and other courts who strictly interpret the Constitution of the United States," said McCain, adding that he believes "Roe v. Wade was a very bad decision." The answer prompted the audience to boo him.

Joining her husband on the show, potential first lady Cindy McCain refused to answer questions about how many houses they own, saying, "You know what, that's not part of this campaign," which ended discussion of the subject. The couple owns nine homes and Obama has made an issue of McCain's inability earlier this month to name the number.

Cindy McCain's Disagreement With Sarah Palin

Adding that she and her husband see "eye-to-eye" on most issues, Cindy McCain did admit to disagreeing with Palin when it comes to abortions in the instance of rape or incest.

Cindy McCain went on to answer the co-hosts' questions about why she believes McCain is the right choice for president.

"He's so good at what he does," said Cindy McCain. "But he's also a very measured man who has always, throughout his entire career, put country first."

"It was always about what was best for the country and not what was best for himself," she added.

"I know that sounds, you know, coming from me, obviously very prejudiced, but I truly believe in that. That's part of what I love about him."
