John McCain’s widow, Cindy McCain spoke with CNN contributor David Axelrod about the state of affairs in the White House and the Republican party:

“I think John would be terribly upset by this whole thing, he was upset before he died. I wish he were here, like all of us… we need him more than ever.”

But at the same time, she said, “I’m not leaving the Republican party. I love the Republican party… but I hope that the younger people who are more moderate than the party represents will have a place at the same Republican table that I was afforded.”

McCain also pointed out that there’s a “real possibility” that Arizona will go Democrat next year, “Younger people are more moderate and so I think you may possibly see a blue state coming up.”
