LA Times and the Handwriting Expert

The LA Times had a handwriting expert review the candidates.

Despite vast policy differences, McCain and Obama have something in common signature-wise — illegibility, which suggests a need for privacy or an aversion to transparency.
In McCain’s case, that desire can be seen further in his H, which is not a loop, but an upward stroke overlapped by a downward one. “There is a lot about John McCain he doesn’t wish to share openly,” said Roger Rubin, a New York graphologist with three decades of experience.
“When you cover a stroke, it means you are hiding something,” Rubin said.
Both men’s signatures also reflect a desire to distance themselves from their fathers, the experts said.

Amazing work, LA Times! What’s next? An astrologer?
