1968 Mustang Convertable 302 Won't Restart?

Hi, My Name is Spencer.
I have a 1968 Mustang Convertable with a 302 in it, manual transmission. It starts right up when it is cold and runs nicely, but when I turn it off I can't get it to start back up. It acts like the battery is run down, but when I pulled the batery cables off and checked the battery it was fully charged and it was good. The starter seems to have a hard time turning the engine over when it is warm. Also after trying to restart the car while it was hot, I realized that the batery cable was really hot. Is it possible that my starter is too weak to turn over the engine when it has compression? I'm very frustrated with this and could use your help. Ideas anyone?
