John McCain Official SC1 John McCain on Hillary Clinton or Rand Paul? ‘Tough choice’

Sen. John McCain says if it in 2016 came down to Sen. Rand Paul or Hillary Clinton for president, he might have a hard time making up his mind.

Asked about the possibility in a new, lengthy interview with The New Republic, McCain (R-Ariz.) quipped: “It’s gonna be a tough choice [laughs].”

McCain said that while a section of the party (including Paul) blocking bills is “of concern,” he understands the Kentucky senator’s agenda.

“Let me just clarify that. I think that Rand Paul represents a segment of the GOP, just like his father. And I think he is trying to expand that, intelligently, to make it larger,” McCain said.

McCain has publicly clashed with Paul before, calling him and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz “wacko birds” for their splits with the party and outspoken political tactics in a March interview. He later apologized. In The New Republic interview, McCain said he tries to keep it respectful.

  1. Oh? Tough choice he says? For me, the choice is quite clear. Hillary no longer has legitimate standing, in my view. Rand Paul has consistently shown his character and integrity. He's a stand up guy that actually represents the people. Hillary is more interested in looking out for herself. As for McCain? His credibility is shot. I have no reason to take anything he has to say with any amount of seriousness. He's a thorn in the side of the Republic. Remove him without honors.
