THE SHADOW PRESIDENT:

John McCain meets PM Manmohan Singh in Delhi (Times of India, 2 Dec 2008)

Influential US Senator John McCain, who unsuccessfully ran for Presidentship, arrived here on Tuesday on an unscheduled visit to show
solidarity in the wake of Mumbai terror attacks and discussed the issue with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

McCain, the Republican party leader, was on his way to Bangladesh and Bhutan but he made a stopover here in view of the Mumbai strikes, sources said.

Soon after his arrival, he met the Prime Minister during which the terror attacks and aspects related to it were discussed.


Nevermind the attention he can command when he travels abroad, his central legislative role in the Senate may make John McCain the most influential losing presidential candidate ever, or at least in modern memory.
