. this is a "cbs news" special report. senator john mccain is about to arrive in capitol hill in washington for one last time. here is a live look at the procession that is bringing mccain's casket to the capitol rotunda. this is actually the east capitol plaza, where he is arriving now and there will be a ceremony inside the rotunda,
where he will lie in state. >> the former vietnam p.o.w. has served in congress for more than 35 years until he died last weekend at age 81. mccain is receiving a rare honor. he is the 31st person in the u.s. history to lie in state in the rotunda. >> that number includes 11 presidents. >> a ceremony inside the rotunda is due to begin at 11:00 a.m. eastern time, less than half hasn't our from now. senate house peeker of the house, paul ryan and mitch mcconnell and mike pence. due to last about an hour. at 1:00 p.m., the public will be invited to view mccain's casket and pay their respects throughout the rest of the day and evening. >> we see now the beginning of this ceremony taking place on capitol hill. the casket carrying john mccain will be greeted by a armed force
barriers. inside he will be placed on a cat a pumt. >> that catapult has great historical meaning. it was built in i believe 1865. it was used by president abraham lincoln and for every other person that has lied in state, 30 people before mccain, they have lied on that catapult. >> hastily built in 1865, but lynn don johnson, john kennedy puts him in some extraordinary company. nancy cordis is outside the capitol. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, this scene is very reminiscent of what we saw in arizona when mccain's body and his casket was removed from the hearst at the arizona state capitol, greeted by a military honor guard and his family. then it will be taken into the rotunda of the capitol building. it's not an overstatement to say john mccain lived for this institution him he loved the
u.s. senate. it was a part of what happilied him aft -- healed him. he loved the fact he would be given this very rare honor to lie in state here at the u.s. capitol today. >> nancy, thank you. we are also joined by bob schieffer our long-time host of "face the nation." market brennan now the host of "face the nation," they are both in walk. now as we see it, i think of the legacy of john mccain there in the united states senate. he served in the capitol more than 35 years, but he never wanted to be known for mr. congeniality, he will be known for the battles he fought, right? >> exactly. i think he was. nancy cordes is exactly right when she says he was a man of the senate. he was a different man. he was not all thes prays worthy, he wanted the senate too
more. as a result, are you right, he used to laugh about that, he will say i will never be elected miss congeniality, but that's not why i came to washington. but he did love that place. he had some epic battles there, he alsoed so some great friendships. we saw yesterday out if arizona when joe biden got up and spoke at his funeral. now, they were tough customers when they got out on the senate floor fighting these various battles. they'd walk off the floor and that friendship remained. it was a kind of friendship reused to see so much in the senate. it is all too rare today. >> market, we will hear from vice president mike pence today. president trump has not attended these ceremonies, but theesidle today. >> reporter: he will. the two had worked towing on
fiscal issues back if 2005 or so. but really, mike pence, filling the void that will be sitting pt donald trump will not be participating. >> that is a deliberate choice. mike pence trying to repair some of the hurt feelings in the past few days given that the president chose not to keep the flag initially at half-staff in mourning. a decision he then reversed. mike pence went and visited with some of american's veterans, the american legion just yesterday and insisted that this administration will continue to remember the lifetime of service that john mccain gave to this country and we saw hours later, president trump came out and said, he, too, respects his service to the country and has offered all sorts of resources to the family, including the military honor guards and the planes that brought the senator's casket from arizona to joint base andrews just yesterday. >> bob, i want to get your thoughts about you talked about
the institution that john mccain wanted so much to protect. he was an institutionalist, okay, coming up through the navy, he believed in it. he thought some of the members fem short. if you think of some of the other senators who have been there hubert humphrey, claude these are giants of the senate. what's your feeling about john mccain in his place in senate history and perhaps a way the senate no longer works? >> well, i this i he will be remembered as one of those giants. in some ways, he was the conscience of the senate. he wanted them to correct rights. he wanted them to address things. i mean, not many people wanted to do campaign finance reform when john mccain made that his issue. he and rush feingold, the democrat from wisconsin were able after years to finally get that legislation passed. but some things, many things
don't last forever. i was thinking, a while ago, we were talking about this, in 1975 after the nixon-watergate situation, i think it was 32 people went to prison or paid heavy fines for finance -- campaign finance law violations. this was even before senator mccain and feingold had passed their thing. having said that, 32 of them went to jamie. all of the things that those people when to the jamie for are now legal. so. >> bob. we see now cindy mccain, his wife. >> yes. >> of 38 years, who joe biden described yesterday as john mccain's ballast, his rock, who has taken him through this. toke they had seven children, some from his first wife and that is his son jack.
you see him in the uniform, he is named john sydney mccain, iv. he is actually a hock pilot, just returned from oversees and deployment. his other son there, too, who is a marine, jimmy. you can see megan mccain there i believe off to the side as well as the family twice receive the casket of senator john mccain, who will lie in state. as mentioned, there will be a ceremony today and then the public can come starting at 1:00 p.m. eastern time to pay their respect, which i think is really one of the most beautiful things ability our democracy is that you can go to the capitol and pay your respects. it's been presidents and leaders of the senate. there have been those who have lied in honor, something different like rosa parks. people of great note worthiness to our american history, where we are allowed to say a final good-bye and say thank you for your service to this nation. >> for a candidate who did 114
town halls in new hampshire, he will have both in phoenix where the public was allowed into the memorial and to go by the casket, it's very fitting for the memory. you also see there, andy, another one of senator mccain's sons standing next to megan and then briget, sydney and then doug there at the ends. >> all seven of his children there waiting. we will also see for the first time john mccain's 106-year-old mother, roberta mccain. >> we should note it looks like joe mccain behind sydney. it looks very much like his brother. he looks very much like senator, his brother john mccain. >> let's pause for a moment now as we first open -- the casket of senator mccain
nancy cordes is right there on capitol hill. nancy. >> reporter: well, how remarkable it was the rain has just begun to come down as his casket is taken out of thearst they walk it into the capitol rotunda where he will lie in state for one last time. we saw 12 to 15,000 people come to pay their respects to mccain at the arizona state capitol and thousands more are expected to come here today. at the top of the steps, his sons saluting as his casket prepares to make the journey up the steps and the family of four is gathered under the portico t heavier here. john mccain was unique
bipartisan physical in the senate. bipartisan because he delighted and enfurriati infuriated both . today you will get a flavor of that, he was side-by-side on many battles and on the other side for many more. for mcconnell, others here in the senate, things can be pretty arc straighted, scripted, not a lot of surprises but there were always surprises from john mccain. >> i am getting the chills watching this. starting to tear up thinking about this final visit by the senator. and it's raining. >> and the body bearers, who exemplify and want, look at the way they're carrying out their duty. you would not know it is raining on them. they are doing that and if you've ever watched that up close, it is an extraordinary
demonstration of precision and ect through the precision, a maintenance of norms and standards in carrying out somebody who has served. >> each of them from a different service of our u.s. military as the official proclamation that allows john mccain to lie in state. as the nation mourns the loss of a great american patriot a statesman, who put his country first and enriched this institutio institution. >> there's also a symbol of patriotism as his body is taken into the capitol with his family watching, standing by. i want to read part of the statement that his daughter released after his passing. >> megan mccain. >> megan mccain. she says my father's passing comes with sorrow and grief for me, my mother and for my brothers and for my sisters. he was a great fire woburned
bright and we lived in his light and warmth for so very long. we know that his flame lives on werfulnd a family man both at home and at work. his colleagues speak so often about how he reached across both sides of the aisle and even in planning his service, he has done that. the presentation of the senate wreath will be by both majority leader mitch mcconnell and minority leader chuck schumer. >> there we see the inside of the capitol rotunda, where there are on vieted gueinvited guests. you can see the chief of staff john kelly is there. one of his best friends, senator linds lindsey graham. >> the attorney general rod rosenstein, former senator cohen of maine. >> he will be one ofpall
bearers tomorrow. two dozen flew to arizona to attend the services there yesterday and traveled back him some of them were at the ceremony at andrews air force base last night and have also come again to pay their respects we mentioned the catapult. you can see the construction put together hastily in 1865. incredible history. not only those mentioned who lie in state. has al it has also held the caskets of dozens of presidents. >> dwight eisenhower. >> bob schieffer and market brennan are in washington. bob. >> well, i'm just thinking. how many times that john mccain has gone across the rotunda,
going from one place to another. it's rotunda, of course the senate is on one side and the house is on the other. but you main was a familiar figure in what we always call laughingly the corridors of power, those senate hallways, because the great thing about you know when you are a reporter is you get to see those people up close. you don't have to go through the press secretary and all that, they're going from one place to another in the capitol. you just walk up and ask them a question. mccain, senator mccain, you can always find senator mccain. he always had time to talk to you. i guess he used to laugh about this, i have known him for so long, he always said, you know, we're two old geezers in this hallway, with a lot of people were 30 years younger, all the other reporters. so we used to laugh about that a lot. we were actually the same age, but he was -- he was so much fun
to cover. you know, he was such a normal human person. he'd get mad. he'd use bad language sometimes. he liked jokes. he loved to review -- he was always asking me have i investigated living in an assisted living home? you know at one point. he just brought a little something extra. >> you know, you mentioned there, bob, that he's the conscience of the senate. in many ways in the past few years, particularly on the national security side, he became the conscience of the sort of global order, right, for someone to cover national security, john mccain was someone who always stood up in the obama administration and the trump administration, whether it's lead from behind or america first, this is not the way things need to be. in fact on one of his last trips abroad when to the munich stared
down vladimir putin saying i'm going to be here representing american value, you will see today a russian dissent vladmir karamusa who will be seated there at the request of john mccain. a final statement there that western values in his view the global order is worth defending. in fact, we are talking about whether the russell building here in washington will be rename after john mccain. there is some talk in brussels, bell judges, about renaming nato headquarters after john mccain, because he is such a goebel figure when it comes reassuring american allies worried about the presidencies of both barack obama and donald trump that america might be retreating from its position of global leadership. >> you know the other interesti margaret, we know who does the work themselves and checks out the story themselves. john mccain always went to the scene of the crime.
he went to all of these placesr credibility just because he had been there and talked to these people, himself. >> syria, afghanistan, war zonss top. >> you recounted that moment, vladimir putin was at the munich conference, had a speech prepared and basically went off script and took on putin right there in front of all of the military leaders of the major countries on the globe. that was often what he was doing either in a big venue like that or carrying the flag of his ideals and what he called the american idea into small corners of the earth, where he thought people were being oppressed by their government or some other forces. >> we now see the vice president of the united states, excuse me, margaret, and his wife karen pence as well as the leaders of the house and senate entering now to take their seats. >> bob, you were mentioning
senator mccain's humor about the institution that he loves so much. i once asked him when he referred to a former colleague as his good friend, i said, senator a lot of times senators refer themselves as good trends. what does that mean? he says, mostly nothing. he always liked to poke a little fun at some of the institution al then we see vice president pence saying hello to john mccain's mother. >> john talks about being the father of admirals, the fate of my fathers. he says, i was my mother's son. he's referring to roberta mccain a real pistol in her own right, who had a twin sisters rowina. they used to travel europe together. one time at the age of 91, she tried to rent a car, they refused, she bought a car herself and shipped it home to the states and drove it cross country. john mccain recalled getting a
public service as a vocation, first in the military, and then an elected office. he placed himself directly in harm's way, during the vietnam war and his great sacrifice of personal freedom is well known. as a senator, he served with honesty and integrity working both with those with whom he agreed and many with whom he did not. hess willingness to speak the truth as he understood it, even when it was fought politically expedient to do so, proved to be a rare phenomenon. for that reason, it was all the more precious. as we continue this celebration of honor, grant that all who atte to these proceedings
might transcend smallness and limitation and emerge as people desirous of being our best selfs in service to all our brothers and sisters as you might call each of us to be. dear lord, thank you for inspiring such greatness in senator john mccain and continue to bless the united states of america, amen. >> mr. vice president, mr. speaker, colleagues, distinguished guests and the
mccain family, it's an honor to welcome you this morning. we gather to recognize a great loss and celebrate a great life. we celebrate six decades of devotion to the american idea and the cause of human freedom. generations of americans will continue to marvel at the man who lies before us. the cocky, handsome naval aviator who barely scraped through school and then fought for freedom in the skies, who witnessed to our house values even through terrible torture and who became a generational leader in the united states senate where our nation airs its great debates. now, airing our great debates is
a gentle way to describe how john approached the work of a senator. i've long joked that his guards at the hanoi hilton probably needed group therapy after john was finished with them. well, let's just say there were times when some of his senate colleagues form a support group of our own. he treated every issue with the intensity the people's business deserve. he would fight tooth and nail for his vision of the common good, depending on the issue, you knew john would either be your staunchest allie or your most stubborn opponent. at any moment, he might be preparing an elegant reflection on human liberty or a devastating joke served up with his signature cackle and that john mccain glimpse in his eye.
he had america's fighting spirit, our noble 'emmism, our solemn patriotism and our sli t irreverent streak all rolled into one. i will miss a dear friend whose smile reminded us that service is a privilege and whose scars reminded us of great cost souls pay for our freedom. john fell like family. but, of course, it is cindy and roberta and joe and doug andy, cindy, megan, jack, jenny and bridget who could truly call this man their own. on behalf of the senate and the entire nation, thank you, thank you for lending him to us longer than we had a right. thank you for supporting him
while he supported us. half a world away, wearing our nation's uniform, john mccain stood up for every value that this capitol building represents. then he brought that same patriotism inside its walls to advocate for our service members, our veterans, and our moral leadership in the world. so it is only right that today near the end of his long journey, john lies here in this great hall under this mighty dome like other american heroes before him. here, as a restless wave approaches the shores of eternity, we thank god for giving this country john mccain.
>> on behalf of a grateful nation and on behalf of congress, i want to begin by giving thanks to the mccain family. for your many years of service to our country. we share your anguish if losing this great man. rarely does this glorious rotunda fall silent at this hour on a day like this, john would usually be bounding this way or that way right through here visitors turning to each other asking if that's who they think it is. but in this quiet hour, we are
left to ponder how his life speaks to us. john mccain deserves to be remembered as he wished to be remembered. a patriot who served his country, a man, yes, of the senate, but also a man of the house, a navy man, a family man, a man who made an enormous difference in the lives of countless people, a man of conviction, a man of state. there's a line from his farewel grabbed me. our identities and sense of worth are not sir coupcircumscr
serving good ness beyond ourselves. that's john mccain, how fitting and how true. what stands out about john mccain is what he stood for. the rich blessings that only freedom can bestow. the sense of purpose that a bell joined can bring. the common humanity that burns in each of our hearts. hemmingway once wrote, the world breaks everyone and afterward, many are strong at the broken plac places. no one, no one was stronger at the broken places than john mccain. the brokenness was his ballast. he never lost the joy that time can dole or the edge that
political life so often sands away. i, mile, from time to time found myself on the receiving end of john's distinct brand of candor. happily so. i remember thinking more than once, yeah, he really does talk like a sailor. but you see with john, it was never famed disagreements, the man didn't fain anything. he just relished the fight. he showed us that in the arena the honest back and forth, that's where the cause gets bigger. that's where the triumph is all the sweeter. we get stronger at the broken places. though the alluded him, he attained what is
far more enduring, the abiding affection of his fellow citizens. and an example for future generations. so i think ahead now. i think ahead to the day when i, like so many, will bring my own children and programs their children to that hallowed lawn in annapolis. i think about that. i think about what i might say to them. this is one of the bravest souls our nation has ever produced. however you choose to do your part, i hope you do it the way he did, with energy and urgency, playing for keeps, never back on your heels, never letting principle yield to expedience,
resisting the false allure of the fleeting and battening down the hatches when things get rough and always, always having a really good story to tell. today, our nation bows in grief, but here under the work of remedi and in the days of the greats, where soldiers known and inkno unknown have laid before. we have this beautiful thing the chance to do for this man what he did for us, to stand up. to stand up and to embrace the cause of his life. no one of us can fulfill this charge. but all of us sure can try.
cabinet, members of our arm forces and honored guestso the family, to cindy, his children, and mrs. roberta mccain, it is deeply humbling to stand before you today at the united states capitol to commemorate the life and service of an american patriot, senator john mccain. the president asked me to be here on behalf of a grateful nation to pay a debt of honor and respect to a man who served our country throughout his life in uniform and in public office. and it's my great honor to be
here. in the long history of our nation, only 30 americans have laid in state here in the united states capitol rotunda. today, as a reflection of the esteem in which his colleagues and our country hold him, senator john mccain joins those ranks. the son and the grandson of four star admirals, john came from a family that prized military service. he entered the united states naval academy when he was just 17-years-old. his service as a naval aviator took him around the world and eventually to the war in vietnam. it was there on his 23rd bombing run that john was shot down and captured, refusing early release for the sake of his comrades, he endured five.5 years of
confinement and torture. then as now, americans marvelled at the iron will of john mccain. but captivity did not diminish john's sense of calling. for h or his commitment to mission. as he would later say, i fell in love with my country when i was a prisoner in someone else's. and after he made it home, john traded service in the uniform of the united states for service in congress, exchanging the rank of captain for congressman and later senator. for 35 years, john served in these very halls under this very dome. and he fought for what he believed in.
in my years in congress, and as vice president, we didn't always agree either. and he almost always noticed. but his support for limited ar surely left our nation more prosperous and more secure and he will be missed. as president trump said yesterday, we respect his service to the country. like many of you gathered here, i also had the privilege of traveling with for mccain to visit our troops overseas. earlier this week, i told cindy of the time on a trip through iraq after another 18-hour day when i was literally falling asleep in the middle of a dinner with iraqi officials.
after the dinner, john, who was more than 20 years older than me, walked up, put his hand on my shoulder and said, "mike, we've got a few more meetings tonight, but why don't you turn in? you look like you could use some rest." thanks, john. honestly seeing him down range, i never traveled with a colleague who was better to our enlisted or heard arder on our m generals. john mccain loved the men and women that served in the youthful of the united states and he was a champion of our armed forces throughout his career. in every generation, there are those who put country first, who prize service ahead of self, who
summon idealism from a cynical age. john mccain was such a man. today, he lies in the place where he served to the last, the congress of the united states. soon, he will go to rest on the grounds where he served first, the united states naval academy. the eyes of the american people will be upon him as he goes. and so, to, will their prayers. for him, and especially for his beloved family, gathered here today, and we will pray that those who mourn shall be comforted. so we mourn with those who mourn and we grieve with those who grieve, but we do not grieve
like those who have no hope. because john mccain, like millions of americans, held firm to that hope from an old hymn that became a tile of a book he wrote some 20 years ago. faith of our fathers. the full stansa of that hymn reads, faith of our fathers living still in spite of dungeon, fire and sword. oh, how our hearts be high with joy when 'er we hear that firm. john mccain held that faith the faith of his fathers, through dungeons, fire and sword. and he held fast to his faith in
america, through six decades of service. we gather here today to honor an american patriot, who served the cause greater than himself and we gather here remembering a man who knew how he wanted to be remembered. and so, let me say, to all those gathered and his beloved family, on behalf of a grateful nation, we will ever remember that john mccain served his country and john mccain served his country honorably. may god bless the memory of john mccain. may god comfort his family and friends. and may god continue to america.
let us bow our heads for the benediction. eternal, lord god, who has made of one blood all the people of the earth, we give thanks for the consequential life of senator john mccain. a drum major for courage, truth, and justice accept our gratitude for his commitment to make decision based upon principles, for hisership during turbulent times and for his life of exemplary and heroic
service. lord, we are grateful for his efforts to do what was in the country's best interest and for providing inspiration that kept our nation strong. we praise you for permitting senator mccain to remind us that we are tied to a single garment of destiny meeting one another to fulfill your purposes for our lives. may the life of this american patriot inspire us to see you more clearly, to love you dearly, and to follow you morenarily each day. now unto him, who is able to
and now we see numbers of the audience at the u.s. capitol ceremony stopping to pay their respects. majority leader mitch mcconnell called john mccain a leader. house speaker said he was one of the bravest souls our nation produced. bob schieffer in washington, your reaction, bob. >> i think john mccain was maybe the bravest person i ever knew. he wasn't afraid of anything. i think that is what i will always remember about him. thissethis se seromoney today. -- ceremony today.
he would have appreciated and been ready to move on. he probably would have made a little joke of some kind if he had been allowed to watch and perhaps he is watching, but i think about what he said, i visited him in may at his place out there in arizona. he knew he was going to die. he knew the time was coming shortly. but john mccain really had no regrets. he wrote, i hate to leave life. i don't have a complaint, though, not one. because it's been quite a ride. that was john mccain. god bless him. >> and, bob, you know, we heard from mitch mcconnell that john mccain represented america's fighting spirit. i think a lot of people are looking to this moment for a bit of spirit themselves and the lesson here of the ability to be bipartisan, atybe optimistic ev so tha somere if there isnien that,haps a forward movemeesha n

>> good morning. >> and congratulations on that apointment. >> thank you very much. there is lot to talk to you and i want to get to iran and north korea in a minute. but first, for someone who negotiated dealsh cane leam your career about every day type of negotiations we may have. >> i think that what i want people to understand is that to do a good negotiation, to really be a good diplomat, you need courage, you need to be able to persist. you need to understand you have to have a team around you to be able to get through our day and to get through our careers. we have to be able to really understand the power in our relationships. i've been very fortunate and i've got a 38-year marriage and it is because we understand what we come with to that marriage and we help each other out. so what i've tried to do in this book is take this high-stakes negotiation about iran and north korea and middle east peace,
cuba and say here is a skillset that we all can use in our every day life to try to make things better and to own our own power. >> you write about negotiating during the iran deal and write about crying, because when off-hand comment that you made left to dem to wendy sherman chants in the streets of iran. i think about being authentic in the book but you have to watch what you say because it could be dangerous. >> indeed. it is dangerous. i regretted having made that statement. >> what was the statement. >> that deception is in their dna in answer to a question from a senator in a senate foreign relations committee hearing and that led to death to wendy sherman on the streets of tehran and i had e-mails pop up to both me and my daughter that my husband was having an affair in europe while i was negotiating. i never quite found out who did
that, though these days we might have some clue about who is sending those kind of e-mails. so there were a lot of obstacles along the way but i think one of life ii'm going t come out the other side. and if i can gather people around me to support me, every place i've worked i've created a support group largely of women. i think you both probably understand this, john, you probably understand in your own way as well. but i think women in the workplace need a support group to know that their not crazy, that they can juggle if you are a mom, which i was. juggle what they have in their lives, and come through the other side. and i think that is a sense of confidence that we all need to make it through life. >> wendy, let me ask you about the ability diplomats need to have to read the person across from the table. often from another culture. give us what it is like to negotiate with the north koreans who you spent a lot of time with and who are very much in the news today. >> you really do have to understand and quite frankly,
john, the difference between autocrats and democrats is autocrats are impulsive and short-term and think about what they want and democrats think long-term and understand history and that we have an obligation to the future and to understand those cultures so that when you are sitting across from north koreans who live in this tiny little world, more of a cult than a country, that they really are cut off from the world. kim jong-un has nothing to do except care about the survival of himself and his regime whereas the president of the united states, most president of the united states any way, believe they have a responsibility for many, many things and the safety and prosperity of the world. >> you've been to north korea? >> that is right. >> and when we were reporting there, our government monitor said, we all want denuclearization but we wantern to play by the same rules. is there a difference, quickly,y wendy, how north koreans and
americans view denuclearization. >> for us we mean getting rid of the ballistic missiles and for north korea it means that we should leave the korean peninsula with all of our troops that we should make sure their regime survives. i think the president and secretary pompeo now the new envoy has a very, very tough road ahead and i don't think they have a plan for getting to the end of that story. >> ambassador wendy sherman, thank you. the book is "not for the faint of heart." envy is a negative quality but it could lead to quality ♪ flintstones! meet the flintstones. ♪
in today's reporters notebook. >> we're looking at how selfless actions could inspire all of us. this week we've shared stories about two men who embody those qualities showing that service often goes hand in hand with sacrifice. senator john mccain, a war here oh, spent 35 years serving in congress and jimmy canity at ag. >> envy is one of the seven deadly sins. advertisers use envy to push us to buy products we don't need.e
introduced me to a different kind of envy. the envy that leads to action. his envy for people who made a difference in the world drew him to jimmy carter and habitat for humanity. >> i should thank you. >> reporter: and for the last 14 years he clipped on a tool built and swung a hammer building houses and he said it changed his life. >> the first time we did it everybody came up to me and said, oh, thank you and i said you're crazy. you're crazy. thank you. and you would get that from any of these people in the helmets building now. they are in debted to the president to the habitat for humanity, giving them the opportunity to help people yofeel better about yourself. >> reporter: this is called beninv the the desire to be better when we see someone doing something good.
this is the underlying theme to the many tributes to john mccain. people felt called to be their best because his example drew people to, as he would say, serve a cause greater than their self interest. tomorrow's mem for john mccain will stir the benign envy my mother would feel at funerals. after hearing the deceased described with words like character and generosity and in love and would feel inspired to go out and live her life that way. so we need more envy in the world. whether you envy john mccain, jimmy carter, david letterman or mom. the envy that leads to action is not a sin, but salvation. >> i love that, john. i love that. it is a good trait. it is like a lot of the feelings that you have accepting and realize if they drive you, create passion in you, change your character for the better. that is good. >> and grant woods said at mccain's service what people see in mccain is what they want to
go see in themselves. >> i believe that doing good gives you better -- more joy than buying something. >> yeah. >> it is true. we'd like to remind you at home, you could hear more of "cbs this morning" on our podcast. find it on apple podcast app or wherever you like to download your podcast. up next, all that mattered this week. you're watching "cbs this morning."
