McCain: "I Don't Want To Be One of These Old Guys That Should've Shoved Off"

Posted By on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 at 11:30 AM

John McCain drops a hint that he's thinking that he's ready for retirement:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) hinted that he may be serving his last term in office, admitting that he does not want to become “one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.”

McCain, a 27-year veteran of the senate and former presidential candidate, made the admission while speaking about his relationship with President Obama.

“The president and I, he's in his last term, I'm probably in mine, the relationship we have had over the past three years is quite good,” McCain told The Wrap in an interview. “Quite good."

The 77-year-old McCain's current term is up in 2016. When asked if this would really be his last term, McCain backtracked a bit.

“Nah, I don’t know,” McCain said. “I was trying to make a point. I have to decide in about two years so I don’t have to make a decision. I don’t want to be one of these old guys that should’ve shoved off.”
