Mr. McCain Returns to Washington NPR's Peter Kenyon reports from the Senate, where John McCain has returned following his unsuccessful bid for the Republican presidential nomination. McCain was never the most popular lawmaker on Capitol Hill, and during his maverick campaign he often targeted specific GOP senators by name. But he struck a chord with many independent voters around the country, and so the question is whether he returns to a hostile atmosphere, or one from where he can continue his calls for political reform.
