McCain is scared of reporters
Look at his body language. He's tense, blinks a lot, and forces a smile for the first half of the interview. He relaxes a little bit after the really hard questions get asked, but even at the end he is stiff. It doesn't reflect well on his experience if he is still scared of reporters after all these years, now does it?
He's putting lipstick on a 'prig'. :-)
Unfortunately, most of the US public will swallow it hook, line, and sinker.
Interesting clip - I don't see much of this in Japan, unless I hunt it down on the internet.
I have a lot of respect for McCain and have faith he'd be a good president but the Republican party is just a complete mess. A party of "change"? And the Palin thing? If I were McCain, I'd be scared too.
