No, I think everyone - including Matthews - respects McCain. How can one not respect him for his extraordinary Vietnam service. So, stop isolalting McCain and impugning something about him that is not true. The issue is not one of respect, but one of curiosity and, perhaps, hypocrisy. Of course, McCain is mad because he lost to George W. Bush who he probably thought was inferior as well as President Obama who he clearly thought he was the better candidate. So, yes he is mad. Now, the hypocrisy part...why is raging about Hagel, Benghazi, etc. - other than purely political purposes - after his stands on Iraq, Afghanistan, and, of course, Sarah Palin....all of which were embarrassingly historically wrong.
