McCain on Letterman, Imus
Posted by Ryan on April 2, 2008
John McCain appeared on the “Late Show with David Letterman” last night, being the last of the three candidates still in this race to appear on the show. McCain is also the most readily available to the media, by the way. McCain wasn’t bad for a politician and actually got off the stage when the skit was finished!
Here’s a clip:
So, I awoke with good-vibes about McCain. Then I got in my car to go to work. I love 77 WABC, which has Don Imus on during my commute. Imus had McCain on this morning and everything was going well — the Dems, the Veep-stakes, etc., until Imus asked McCain if McCain thought the Iraq War “was worth it.” McCain got two full uninterrupted minutes and managed to dodge a direct answer, talking about mismanagement and such, rather than the long-term strategy or sacrifices of the soldiers and stuff that we expect from McCain. This was not a good development in my book. Ugh.
