McCain Says Obama Snubbed Him After 2008 Election

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told The Hill that President Barack Obama or his cohorts never made a genuine effort to reach out to him in the wake of the 2008 presidential election.  

“Let’s get real here,” McCain said. “There was never any outreach from President Obama or anyone in his administration to me.”

The frosty relationship between the two that typified the 2008 campaign never really thawed after Obama took office, with McCain emerging as one of the most vocal critics of the administration in the U.S. Senate.
