WASHINGTON -- Two years after running against President Barack Obama, Senator John McCain says he sees a change.
Appearing on CBS' "Face the Nation," McCain expressed optimism that Obama will lead Democrats and Republicans to find common ground on key issues.
Asked if the push to repeal health care reform is a waste of time -- because Senate Democrats will block repeal and, should it pass, the president would veto it -- McCain said, "We need to have a vote on it because we promised the people we would. We campaigned that we would `repeal and replace'. We have to have a vote on repeal, so that everybody's on record whether they want to repeal. Then, I think, piece by piece, we go through -- quote -- replacing."
McCain said he believes that, this time around, Democrats are more willing to negotiate on specifics of the health care program.
At Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday, McCain plans to sit with Sen. Tom Udall, a Democrat from New Mexico.
The Arizona Republican said he thinks having Democrats and Republicans sit together instead of dividing by parties is "a good idea."

Election 2008: A liberal running against a far left radical.
The radical one.
That’s the trouble with RINOs like McCain.
They think Obama has become a centrist.
He is only talking like one, not acting like one.
Obama is a lying liberal and will always be one.
This is actually a good thing. McCain is done on the national stage so this will smoke out other GOP senators who actually think they can come to terms with Communism. It will be the old game—Obama proposes a 100% spending increase and the McCain team will propose a 50% increase and they, along with the MSM, will call anyone who proposes a 0% spending increase or a cut an “extreme Right Wing” whatever.
Juan is hoping the media “think” shows will start inviting him on again.
McCain’s voices from Vietnam are talking to him. He needs to retire.
"butt smoocher will eventually wind up a rat"
"butt smoocher will eventually wind up a rat"
I don’t want John to die, but his retirement would be worth a FR holiday!
McCain, on the other hand, hasn't changed a bit...
He had a good speech regarding an innocent who was shot. Other than that what on earth has he done..? Exponentially increasing the deficit, incurring massive debt under which this country is drowning..zero job creation, health care snafu, one vacation after the next...short memory or what John Mc..?
This is NEWS?? Of course. The McCain we all knew is back. Just as Republicans were in a box in the prez election,
Arizona had no credible candidate to put up against him.
Why ANYONE in the GOP would be deferential to Obama, other than putting on a show, is beyond me.
All he and his cronies have done is pi$$ on every member of the Republican Party.
If I start hearing this stuff from Boner I'll be R E A L L Y worried.
He is so sad! John McCain the great political masochist.
Let’s have a friendly wager, Juan. I’ll bet you $xxx million that Obama won the 2008 Presidential election and you can bet me that you won . . . .
Not even Juan McCain is stupid enough to want to negotiate with a proven liar. Truth is, Juan is on Obama’s side . . . just like he was in the 2008 election.
Will somebody Please post a comic pic of Charlie Brown getting ready to kick a football held by Lucy. We have so many Charlie Browns in the Republican Party.
Thank you Arizona.... for giving this nation the gift that keeps on
What do you call the combination of Anethum graveolens and a female deer?
For some time I have felt that mclame was tortured too much in Viet Nam. He needs to resign and go drink his rich wife’s beer. He is an embarrassment to America.
Obama has changed?
Change? Where Have I heard that?
I get so sick of hearing BS from the same politicians year in year out....I swear, they must see private sector America as bunch of freaking dummies....Of course, Obama is the president...
McCain is a marxist folks lets face it.
There is no such thing as a “centrist”.
You either believe in the Constitution and small government or you don’t.
mccain hasn’t held back since DADT expired...
McCain, Brown, Snow, Susan Collins, and the rest of the Gang of Rinos, maybe the GOP has just reached the end of entropy like the WHIGS. Like Jack La Lane. Maybe they just have a perverse hatred for themselves and their Republican base. Well they have just about impressed upon me the futility of voting Republican.
he is everything what is wrong with our side.
Why is it that those who seem to be elected and have ivy league educations are just plain naive or dumb?
It strikes me that to do what McCain claims Obama has done, wouldn’t that mean that Obama has no core principles?
The lens louse strikes again.
Didn’t take him long to dump that nasty conservative mask.
Oh of course....goes without saying all due respect for serving and suffering etc .... BUT ! That is not a license to destroy your country or it’s infrastructure.
Time for him to RETIRE as he isn’t worth a damn as a polidiot !!
Stay safe !
Well, that didn’t take long at all now, did it?
(It actually took him several weeks longer to turn traitor and backstabber than I thought it would. He must be getting old...)
I hate this guy almost as much as Obama, Nancy, and Reid. All have led our country over the cliff and deserve equal scorn.
“McCain said he believes that, this time around, Democrats are more willing to negotiate on specifics of the health care program.”
Democrats willing to negotiate is like saying McPain is a sane Republican politician. It’s pure fantasy.
Since when are we tossing our principles on the HealthCare matter, and negotiating by line item? Abolish the damned thing.
Juan McLame is deluded if he believes the liberals want to work with Conservatives.
I saw him say this. He’s either losing it, or lying through his RINO teeth.
What, John no longer thinks "(Obama) is a decent person, and a person that you do not have be scared as President of the United States"...?
Naah, must be some *other* change.
Whew... Can anybody be as naive and stupid as McCain?
The rats must laugh their asses off at this pathetic chump.
Obama is laughing all the way to re-election when he reads crap like this...
He just doesn’t have a clue, does he. He has no idea that O just uses words for his own gain, —— that he will say anything,—— because there are fools like McCain who will believe them.
This is why most citizens don’t bother to vote.
If your choice is between Bubonic Plague and AIDS, why bother?
McCain is an idiot plain and simple...
Amazing how things change right after the election. I can’t believe Arizona keeps re-electing this RINO clown. (OK, Utah has some long-endurance RINOs, too, but we’re getting busy running ours out of town!)
You can just stop at opportunist.
His entire life.
Flush this idiot with the rest of the turds!
On a different note
People easily hypnotized follow this guy...
