McCain Chats With Press on Final Flight of Campaign

From CBS News' John Bentley:

(ABOARD STRAIGHT TALK AIR) – On the final flight of John McCain's campaign plane, McCain did something he has only done twice since he started flying on it last summer – he came back and talked to the press.

"We've spent a lot of time together, some have been together for almost two years,' he said. "We've had a great time."

McCain said he was heartened by the enthusiasm he's been seeing at the rallies, and felt good about his prospects.

"We're looking forward to the election results tonight. I'm feeling good, feeling confident about the way things have turned out. We've had a great ride, we've had a great experience," he said, surrounded by the traveling press corps, as well his wife Cindy and traveling companions Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. "It's full of memories that we will always treasure."
