to john mccain and said he was captured i don't like people who were captured and that was an unforgivable statement and joe and it was i think donald trump the lowest moment in politics in terms of what john mccain achieved as a politician in the senate what you think were the most sort of pivotal political moments for him. while in the senate is certainly was a strong strong supporter of the iraq war which turned off a lot of democrats but he was also a strong supporter of defense of the military which is the background he came from whenever there was a threat or a danger to military spending or to any kind of military preparations john mccain would come to the rescue of his beloved military and of the pentagon that really alienated some democrats who are otherwise sympathetic to him but it made him a hero among defense intellectuals and among americans who supported an aggressive and a leading american role in the world which we seem to have be we could be abandoning
11:01 am
now under the current president often we see politicians who reach the end of the political career perhaps have regrets about some of the decisions or some of the positions they have it took for want to try and rectify that legacy dare i say it's with john mccain this whole issue one word the consciousness of america becomes quite evident in the final years before his death do you think there was all were moments of regret or reflection that perhaps transformative and molded him into the man that we remember in twenty eighteen. well. i know when he first ran for president it was in the year two thousand he lost the nomination to george w. bush he ran as a bipartisan figure he got a lot of support from democrats that year because he had a great campaign theme straight talk it was the perfect theme after eight years of bill clinton wasn't really
11:02 am
a straight talker john mccain promised honesty and straight talk and he got very far on that promise among both republicans and democrats but he made the mistake of insulting conservatives who then ganged up on him and rallied behind george w. bush to defeat him i suppose if there was any low moment in john mccain's career or at least the moment that deserves reflection and some greater explanation it was his selection of sarah palin as his running mate when he ran in two thousand and eight that to many americans remains inexplicable and they don't understand why he did it or what he got him well for by but we will leave it there bill schneider always good to get your thoughts thanks very much for joining us in washington d.c. there's a lot more of the top story in pope francis has vowed to end the sexual abuse of children by the catholic church on the first day of his visit to ireland the pope held a private meeting with eight irish victims who suffered abuse by members of the clergy some of them were forced into adoption as children after being born to single
