John McCain: Deciding who to vote for between Hillary and Rand Paul a ‘tough choice’

In an interview with New Republic, John McCain, having previously referred to Hillary as a “rock star,” said that in a hypothetical 2016 match-up between Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul, he’s not sure which one he’d pull the lever for:

IC: The GOP leadership—Mitch McConnell, Minority Whip John Cornyn—is from the same states as Cruz and Paul. Is that a particular problem?

JM: Sure, yeah.

IC: When Hillary Clinton versus Rand Paul occurs in 2016, I guess you are going to have to decide who to vote for, huh?

JM: It’s gonna be a tough choice [laughs].

IC: So—

JM: Let me just clarify that. I think that Rand Paul represents a segment of the GOP, just like his father. And I think he is trying to expand that, intelligently, to make it larger.

McCain was of course joking about the “tough choice” part. There’s no way he’d consider voting for Paul over Hillary.

Republican Senator Rand Paul represents a segment of the GOP, according to the Republican Senator who represents a segment of the Democratic Party. It’s gotten so bad that the other day Mitch McConnell said that he asked McCain and Chuck Schumer when they’re getting married.
