WaTimes: An audio excerpt of Sen. John McCain’s new book released Thursday addresses his battle with cancer and message he’d like to leave behind.
“I don’t know how much longer I’ll be here,” Mr. McCain, Arizona Republican, says on the recording released to National Public Radio. “Maybe I’ll have another five years. Maybe with the advances in oncology, they’ll find new treatments for my cancer that will extend my life. Maybe I’ll be gone before you hear this. My predicament is, well, rather unpredictable.”
“The Restless Wave” also talks about politics, President Trump, and the general state of American public life. He also takes some accountability for former Gov. Sarah Palin’s mistakes on the campaign trail in 2008 after selecting her as his running mate.
“She stumbled in some interviews,” Mr. McCain says, “and had a few misjudgments in the glare of the ceaseless spotlight. Those missteps, too, are on me. She didn’t put herself on the ticket. I did.” MORE
