McCain on “The View”

John McCain had a contentious interview on "The View," in which Barbara Walters asks him about what exactly Sarah Palin intends to "reform" in Washington.

It’s one of the harder hitting interviews that I have seen of the candidate recently, and even McCain supporter Elizabeth Hasselbeck tries to get in a less-than softball question.

McCain also defended his "lipstick on a pig" and "sex ed" ads, primarily by noting that campaigns are tough business.
