A friendlier McCain visit with David Letterman

John McCain paid a lighthearted visit to David Letterman on CBS' "Late Show" Thursday, joking: "I don't want to talk about the bleeping campaign." The former GOP presidential candidate also praised President-elect Barack Obama for some of his staff choices, including Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton. He shared Letterman's incredulousness at Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

McCain said Blagojevich, accused of trying to sell Obama's old Senate seat, has a rare combination of being, in Letterman's words, stupid and nuts.
