Saying he is at the "top of my game," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., contends he is looking "very seriously" at seeking a sixth term in the Senate.
McCain would be 80 years old when he is again up for re-election in 2016, but told "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno
on Monday he might well make a bid to stay.
He first was elected to the Senate in 1987 after spending four years in the House of Representatives.
Leno asked what had changed most in those years.
"Lack of good relationships. Too much polarization. Too much anger," McCain answered.
McCain himself has been known to have a temper, and in 2013 called tea party members of the GOP Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Justin Amash "wacko birds." He later apologized
He still may have some of those tea party members in mind, however. He predicted a spirited debate in the GOP in the 2016 presidential primaries since some of those expected to run are, as he termed them, "isolationists."
