On stage, he's a Republican who doesn't always keep company with his party. He says he's against abortion, but for stem cell research. He warns that global warming is a threat and that the country needs more nuclear power. And above all is the McCain mantra that the Republican party has been spending the country into ruin.
"We let spending get out of control to a degree where it led to corruption," he says. How did it happen? "We lost our way. We began to value power over principle," McCain says.
"It's not the party that you hoped it would be?" Pelley asks,
"Absolutely," McCain says. "Nor is it the party that Ronald Reagan hoped we would be."
On the road to the primaries, 60 Minutes found one issue he doesn’t like much, but one that shadows his campaign. "CBS News did a poll in March, and asked people, 'How old do you think the President of the United States should be?' More than half said in his 50s. Would you hazard a guess how many thought the president should be in his 70s?" Pelley asks.
"I don't like this line of questioning at all. I find it offensive. I'm sure that it was a small, it was a small number. But, let me respond to that right away," McCain replies.
