FWIW, here's what I'd do... Call Gramps McCain into the Oval Office for a little conversation. Remind the fucker that I beat him once, rather handily, and that I still have a rather considerable political machine at my disposal. "Every ounce of that power will be used to defeat you AGAIN, SOB, when you come up for reelection. Cut the shit, and, in the words of the Bushies, 'You lost; get over it.'"
