Ed. Note: To mark the passing of Senator John McCain, we’re reposting this interview Jay Nordlinger did with him in 2015.
Jay’s guest today is John McCain, the senior senator from Arizona and the 2008 Republican presidential nominee. At Jay’s prompting, he covers the waterfront, or at least a fair stretch of it: Iran, Syria, Israel, China, etc. He talks about wars past and present (and possibly future). Did the U.S. betray the people of South Vietnam? Did McCain think he would get out of the cells alive?
He also talks some politics, including George W. Bush, the 2008 campaign, and Sarah Palin. McCain describes himself as the luckiest man alive. He says he wakes up grateful to God every day. Have a listen. Whatever your politics, you will hear a man who has had an extraordinarily big life.
