WHAT? Did McCain really say that? Yes he did.
|"She's a rock star"|
In a wide ranging interview in The New Republic, in response to a question asking him to evaluate Hillary Clinton's job performance as Secretary of State, he said of Clinton, " I think she did a fine job. She’s a rock star. She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world." This is said of the Secretary of State who allowed Benghazi to occur and took part in the scam that tried to say it was the result of outrage over a Youtube video rather than a terrorist attack and who continues to be part of the cover up of Benghazi.
Later in the interview, there is this exchange:
Now, I myself am not totally comfortable with Rand Paul. The more I hear from him, the more I like him. However, some of his grassroots supporters are extreme isolationist and I need to be reassured that Rand Paul would not endanger American security by disengaging from the world in a reckless manner that would benefit our adversaries. I, however, think we may be overextended in the world and some strategic retrenchment may be called for and I think the military can be as wasteful as any other agency of government. I also think the invasion of Iraq was a mistake and unnecessary. In any event, I do not think that if Paul proves himself to be a reckless isolationist he could win the nomination, so if there is a match-up between Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul, I could not imagine it being a "tough choice."IC: When Hillary Clinton versus Rand Paul occurs in 2016, I guess you are going to have to decide who to vote for, huh?JM: It’s gonna be a tough choice [laughs].
In addition to not liking Rand Paul, McCain is critical of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and when asked who is his favorite Senators are he names Democrat Senators Chuck Schumer and Carl Levine. H also says, "Lindsey Graham is like a son to me."
I am kind of late getting here, but I am over John McCain.
