7:09 am
>> he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured, okay. >> the funny part of it, didn't bother john mccain at all. he could have cared less. and that's just because, hey, i'm lived a pretty full life here. i'm going to do what i think is right. >> reporter: later this week, mccain will lie in state at the u.s. capitol. his longtime colleagues remembering their friend. >> he was widely respected but he knew what the goal was. the goal was to make this a better nation. >> reporter: arizona governor doug ducey says that out of respect for the mccain family, he will not name a successor for mccain's seat in washington until mccain is laid to rest next weekend. mccain requested that he be buried at his beloved u.s. naval academy in annapolis, maryland, near the grave of a longtime friend. >> so appropriate. such a class act. thank you, nancy, so much. john dickerson covered mccain's political career for
7:10 am
more than 20 years including hid john is in mishawaka, indiana, with a look back. you were one of the first kn thes i thought about, because mccain family. good to see youmorning. >> reporter: yes, thanks, gayle. when you hear about john mccain passing, with his friends and family, it really was the way he would have wanted to go. though it's terribly sad news for the family, i think they feel really strengthened by the way that john mccain was a bell to go out on his own terms. as a senator, john mccain forged a reputation as a champion of bipartisanship during his more than three decades in the senate. some of the conservative republicans closest friends and collaborators were democrats. ted kennedy of massachusetts. joe lieberman of connecticut and russ feingold of wisconsin. mccain challenged lawmakers to set aside party loyalty and work
7:11 am
together. a standard he always successfully, to live by. >> mr. mccain. >> reporter: six days after learning he had brain cancer last year, senator john deciding vote to save obamacare. >> stop listening to the bombastic loud mouths on the radio and television and the internet. to hell with them. >> reporter: he often urged his colleagues to ignore extreme voices, even in the white house. >> some half baked spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems. >> reporter: the son and grandson of admirals, john graduated near the bottom of his class at the naval academy. he was shot down during vietnam, impressiistortured. refusing early release and staying six years. he later worked to normalize
7:12 am
relations with vietnam. the war hero left the navy in 1980. the day his father was buried. and found a new way to serve as an elected official. >> i had no improper behavior involved in this -- >> reporter: after being singed for his role in the keating five corruption scandal in the late 1980s, mccain pushed for reform of campaign finance laws. >> we came to power to change washington and washington changed us. >> reporter: he built his 2000 presidential campaign around that issue. and nearly knocked off the party establishment favorite george w. bush. in the 2008 campaign, mccain wanted to pick democratic senator joe lieberman as his running mate. >> governor sarah palin -- >> reporter: but instead picked alaska governor sarah palin. that decision to woo the party's die hards foreshadowed the ascendancy of president donald trump and the seemingly irresistible pull of the republican party fringe, which he memorably resisted in the final day, of his 2008 campaign.
7:13 am
>> i can't trust obama. i have read about him and he's not -- he's an arab. he is not? no? >> no, ma'am. no, ma'am. he's a decent family man, citizen, that i just happened to have disagreements with -- >> reporter: senator mccain was married twice and had seven children. during his final months, a steady stream of friends visited him at his favorite spot on his deck in sedona, arizona, where he loved to grill. norah. >> nice to see him there in his favorite spot. one of his other favorite spots was on the campaign trail. john where you and i spent many a miles out there with him. not only in the senate campaign but in the 2000, 2008, riding the straight talk express. he was sarcastic. he also gave it back a lot to reporters and even people there in the audience sometimes. remember for us, too, what you
7:14 am
found, some of the highlights of your time with him. >> well, you characterized exactly perfectly, norah. it was that -- this word is so overused in politics -- but the authenticity. it's one thing to talk about being open to other ideas but it's quite another thing for voters to see you in a town hall engaging with somebody who is criticizing you, really giving it to you, and giving it right back to them. it's one thing to talk about bipartisanship but to show it like that is what voters found so attractive about john mccain. i know you loved the story of mike christian. when politics talk about patriotism, that's one thing. when john mccain tells a story of mike christian who sewed the american flag inside his prison uniform inside the hanoi hilton and people openly weep, that is connecting with voters in a way that's so much more powerful than lots of the precooked lines that politics just sort of shoot over their heads at rallies in many of the politics we see today. >> he served this country so
7:15 am
beautifully, not only in the military but in public service. john, thank you so much. earlier this morning, we spoke with rick davis, one of senator mccain's close esst confidants. he served as campaign manager both times mccain ran for president. he was with the mccain family in phoenix this past weekend. we asked him about the senator's final days. let's start first with i know you were with the mccain family recently. what was it like to be with him in his final days? >> well, it was a great pleasure for me to be counted as one of the family over the last week. you know, we've been together almost since these kids were born and to have spent a lot of time in the last six months in and out of their beautiful place in sedona with the family, with cindy and the kids, was probably the greatest opportunity of my life to sort of see closure with what has been the greatest
7:16 am
wildist adventure i think in anybody's history. so it was really wonderful to be included. i really appreciated it. as heartbreaking as it was, i can't imagine wanting to be anywhere else. >> what is the best way we can honor and pay tribute to him, rick, as someone who knew him well? >> well, gayle, i thiyestery wao what that tribute is looking like. i don't think i've ever seen a sunday, you know, where there was only one report and that was all about john mccain. he would have loved that. he loved the media. he felt really strongly about having total access to all of you. and as a political strategist for him for over 20 years that was a nightmare for me most of the time. but he would have loved it. i don't think he would have spent two minutes away from the television set watching all the
7:17 am
coverage. it was just glorifying. and around the world. i mean, every media outlet and every country and every capital, you know, spent the day talking about john mccain and that was really a special thing. >> one of his colleagues said yesterday we're losing john mccain right when we need him the most. which may account for the extraordinary outpouring of affection from both sides. and you get the sense from john dickerson's piece that john mccain was aware of of that in his last year. did you get that sense? >> yes, a lot of john's life was spent in the arena. i mean, he was the man in the arena. he loved it. the harder it was, the better he liked it. and i think it was a bit of a bittersweet situation for him for the last six months. he was in a beautiful place, surrounded by his family, fighting, you know, cancer, and every day wishing he was in that senate, trying to make america a
7:18 am
better place. and he had great opportunities and some of the speeches in the last year to really use the opportunity to crystalize some of those messages. i'm so proud that he was able to do that, you know, in philadelphia, at the freedom award, and annapolis, the places he really loved. >> senator mccain requested that both former presidents barack obama and george w. bush speak and deliver eulogies at his funeral. these were the two men that kept him from the presidency. why did he want them to eulogize him? >> i think it's a very practical thing. there are things he experienced himself, right, it's not just somebody else's story that's a message to the people. it's his life story. even in defeat, he found ways to work with people like george
7:19 am
bush and barack obama. in a world that's turned red and blue and nothing in between, even as he planned his own funeral, he felt very strongly that he wanted to have these two individuals who he grew to respect and work with closely to try and accomplish important things for the country and the world to be present at his funeral. >> and the decision not to -- the family's decision foot to include president trump at the funeral too also says something, does it not? >> well, we really want to focus on the positive aspects of john's life. i'd prefer not to get into any of that at this point. >> totally understand that. thank you for joining us. pope francis faces the call to resign. ahead, the explosive allegations by a former vatican good monday morning to you:

7:31 am
here are a few things you should know this morning. mexico are in talks about the free trade agreement. president trump tweeted minutes ago, a big deal looking good for mexico. critical issues like automobile trade and energy policies are at the center of those nafta discussions. canada, the third country involved in the pac said it hopes mexico solves all bilateral matters. a tropical storm 1,700 miles east of the islands. the once category 5 hurricane drenched part of the island with 51 inches of rain. it was the highest rain total from a tropical cyclone in the u.s. since 1950. a new study says daily low-dose aspirin may not prevent strokes or heart attacks in people with moderate risk of a first cardiovascular event.
7:32 am
taking aspirin every day has been known to lower the risk of recurrent heart attacks or strokes. experts say health issues such as smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes also affect whether aspirin will be successful at prevention. they advise consulting with a doctor on how to use the drug. senator john mccain represented arizona, but new hampshire played a special role in his political career. mccain held 114 town halls across the state during his presidential campaign in 2000. john dickerson covered mccain in the lead-up to his historic victory in that year's new hampshire primary. john recently returned to the new hampshire town of peterborough to hear them comment on the remarkable political story. later today he will interview former president jimmy carter. john, good morning. >> that's right, i'll talk to president carter. i'll ask him about senator mccain.
7:33 am
as you heard so many times senator mccain in new hampshire talked about devoting yourself to a cause greater than your self-interest. president carter is here at habitat for humanity. there is an army of volunteers dedicating themselves to just that. what made covering senator mccain in 2000 so extraordinary is that he was all open. everything was on display, and yet behind it were classic american values. mccain was an independent, called a maverick, breaking down the status quo. for the moment in time he won in new hampshire. for the merry band surrounding him and the senator, it was nothing short of magical. >> we came here for one of our first town hall meetings in the basement and served ice cream in hopes that we could get a few people out, and we got 13. but then the last one we had, the night before the primary, was jam-packed with people out the door. >> reporter: what happened here at the town hall in peterborough, new hampshire is a
7:34 am
metaphor for john mccain's 2000 presidential campaign. >> i'll show you how reviving -- >> steve duprey ran the republican party at the time. mike dennehy was the campaign manager. >> this was our campaign for 2000. it illustrated the entire campaign from start to finish, starting so small and ending up with people busting through the doors. >> i can beat al gore like a drum. >> reporter: senator john mccain relentlessly campaigned across the state on a bus aptly named the straight talk express. >> since 1999, give me a sense of where the republican party is. >> wide open. i just remember we had lots of candidates. >> reporter: the field of candidates included elizabeth dole, dan quayle, pat buchanan and texas governor george w. bush. >> our first poll in new hampshire showed me at 2% with a 5% margin of error.
7:35 am
what that could mean is 3% actually were against me. >> reporter: the arizona senator often asked the crowd for sympathy. >> because we have so little water in arizona, the trees chase the dogs. >> reporter: you all sort of think of yourselves as david and goliath versus george w. bush? >> yes. george w. bush had everything going for him, so it was difficult to get anyone's attention. but what we did get was john mccain's time, which was the most meaningful. >> reporter: mccain was a different kind of politician. he may have kept tubs of hand sanitizer on the bus, but he shook every hand, took every question. >> questions. yes, ma'am. >> i like republicans, democrats, libertarians, vegetarians, legalitarians. there were people that would interrupt, and john would say, if you just stop yelling, i'll call on you next and we can have our debate.
7:36 am
and he would take on these people, and after a couple minutes, he would say, okay, i'm clearly not your candidate, i think we're done and you need to sit down so others can have a chance. >> reporter: mccain's candor was on display during those long stretches on the road. >> i'll be glad to beat the crap out of president clinton. >> reporter: even, and perhaps most especially, when reporters were on the bus. >> reporter: steve, it feels like the campaign in 2000 and the senator in a horseshoe of reporters talking, as near as we can tell, constantly. that feels like an age before the internet. would it be possible today? >> no, it wouldn't, and i saw john do this on the bus a couple times. he made comments like, oh, that would not look good as a headline. he goes and does the town hall meeting and we talked to reporters and said, john mccain would like to revise that
7:37 am
statement, and it worked. >> reporter: did he have any flaws? >> not at all. >> reporter: oppon s mcin's mper, calling him senator hothead. mccain's team prepared him for criticism during this closed door strategy session filmed by "60 minutes." >> you killed a guy, you did all kinds of stuff. >> you know, that really makes me mad. >> reporter: in the primary, mccain beat george w. bush by an astounding 18 points. >> i think there is a feeling among the establishment that we might have interfered with the coronation. >> reporter: what's the political legacy of john mccain? >> he put the town hall meeting on the map. john mccain just made interacting with people, giving answers to questions, the legacy of a presidential campaign in new hampshire. >> i want the presidency in the best way, not the worst way. >> reporter: after a blistering
7:38 am
victory, mccain went on to lose in south carolina. but for a moment in time, the insurgent took on the establishment and won. >> america loves heroes. john mccain is a legitimate hero, and i know he annoys a lot of people in his party. i think sometimes he enjoys it a little bit too much, but i think the american people respect the fact that john mccain is going to tell you what he thinks even if it makes you madder than hell. you can disagree with him but you can't question his patriotism or his service. >> reporter: there have been a lot of questions of whether anyone will pick up the mantle after john mccain. there was nobody else like him. but his message in new hampshire and throughout his political life were the things that gave him sustenance in hanoi throughout the years and all of his career were in all americans, duty, discipline, honor and love of country. those values are still open to all of us, and that was mccain's biggest message to those
7:39 am
audiences who found him so compelling in 2000 and 2008. >> john dickerson, thank you, john. extraordinary life and extraordinary career. the sex abuse scandal rocking the catholic church has reached all the way to the top. ahead, why pope francis is now facing calls to step down amid new allegations. you're watching "cbs this morning". that's why there's otezla. otezla is not a cream. it's a pill that treats moderate to severe plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable. don't use if you're allergic to otezla . it may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. otezla is associated with... increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts,... ...or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. upper respiratory tract infection and headache may occur. tell your doctor about your medicines and if you're pregnant or planning to be.
