McCain Speaks His Heart Out At “Tonight” Show

McCain Speaks His Heart Out At “Tonight” ShowJohn McCain joined Jay Leno, host of the "Tonight" show, in taking a dig at the Republican presidential nominee’s age. But when it came to the issue of his family’s wealth, he turned serious.

"Could I just mention to you Jay, that in a moment of seriousness, I spent five and a half years in a prison cell, I didn't have a house, I didn't have a kitchen table, I didn't have a table, I didn't have a chair," said McCain, citing his history as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. "I spent those five and half years not because I wanted to get a house when I got back home."

Most of the interaction on the show was lighthearted. McCain turns 72 on Friday, and was making his 13th appearance on the late-night show.

McCain also joked about choosing a running mate.

"I know you've been asking about who I want to be my running mate," he said. "Wouldn't it be good to have a person you don't know what party they're with, they have no political principles whatsoever, they may need a job about that time. Who can I be referring to?'"

Leno, who is about to leave NBC, rejected the proposition saying, “I can make more doing a week in Vegas.”
