Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday that he is considering running for another term in 2016, when he would be 80 years old.

"I'm seriously thinking about maybe giving another opportunity for you to vote for or against me in a few years from now," McCain said on KFYI-AM in Phoenix. "I'm seriously giving that a lot of thought."

Actually, Cruz could, during the debate point out why McCain lost the first time.
I think McCain would be a good foil for Cruz.
Run John.
Lose in the Primary this time!

Trapped,

I really do appreciate you giving voters the opportunity. That is very considerate. However, don't go out of your way. You have certainly without doubt done enough already. Why not let some younger less crazy youngster relieve you?

Nope. McCain’s mother is 101 years old and still motoring along. Despite his Vietnam captivity & torture, hard living, skin cancer, etc., it will be this country’s misfortune for the b@$t@rd to live another 25 years or more...and do it in office!

Nonsense, foolish bragging about his collaboration with the commies to defeat Cruz.

Let him boast, he is an admitted enemy of Americans now....he will be the first to the gallows.

You have to give SP a break for endorsing McCain’s re-election to the senate in 2010. He did after all choose her to be his running mate in 2008.

I think he should move to Libya since he has so many terrorist friends there. Him running for President against King Barry in 2008 pretty much proves that the FIX IS IN when it comes to MARXISTS OCCUPYING our White House. Looking back at some of the statements he made while running in 2008 compared to what he says now.. McCain and Palin couldn’t be more opposed on every issue. He is a demon and a liar for running as a Republican in 2008! LIAR LIAR LIAR whose ONLY purpose was to sabotage the race and throw it to 0bama.

Precisely! The former warrior has so dishonored himself by his betrayals as a senator that he knows he has nothing to lose (and a sadistic sense of enjoyment to gain, I suspect) by sticking his dirty finger in the eyes of the conservative base.

Best thing for conservatives to do (besides not responding to his Alinksy-Democrat Socialist Party tactic) is to crush him in the next primary election.

I actually interpreted this to mean that he is going to run for President again, but I guess this means he might run for Senator again..YUCK, please Arizona, grow a brain and don’t re-elect him again..or he might run as a Dem since we all know that is exactly what he is

I'd pay good money to see a debate between those two. McCain would be bringing a pea shooter to a gun fight.

Please John, stop now. You did not run a campaign that excited anyone. Like Bob Dole, you were handed the nomination by the PARTY establishment because your time had come; that time is gone. You single handedly elected Barrack Obama, and for all appearances have been a go-between for him and the republicans. We want a conservative, not a Republican from Arizona that is so liberal that he would be a Democrat in New York.

The article is speaking about a reelection effort for his current Senate seat.
