Former presidential hopeful John McCain made his fourteenth visit to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night.
It was the celebrated veteran's first television interview since losing the presidential election - and he was surprisingly upbeat.
"I'm sleeping like a baby. I sleep two hours, I wake up crying. Sleep two hours, wake up crying," McCain said, drawing laughter from the audience.
The Arizona senator went on to dodge questions about Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and said he has moved past the partisanship of the campaign.
"Now it's time for America to join together and support the man who was just elected president," the Arizona senator said. "The one thing I think Americans don't want is a sore loser."
McCain said his only concern was over the fallout over Joe Lieberman's support of his campaign, saying he didn't want Lieberman to lose his committee chairmanship for having supported his candidacy.
