Keeping up with John McCain
By Josh Rogin
I’ll never forget the time the McCain delegation stopped in Budapest in 2014 on the way to a conference in Munich. We only spent five hours on the ground. But John McCain accomplished more diplomacy, human rights advocacy and mischief in those five hours than most senators do in a month. This was why folks traveling with McCain referred to his trips as “Bataan death marches,” a torture-themed joke McCain thought was funny.
