Two weeks after the presidential nominee ticked off the talk show host by canceling at the last minute - then filming an interview with Katie Couric
instead - comes word that McCain is in talks to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman
later this month.
McCain's reps are negotiating an appearance on Dave's show sometime around the final presidential debate on Oct. 15, reports the New York Post
. The former POW will already be in the area as the debate takes place at Hofstra University on Long Island, NY.
The trouble between the men began on Sept. 24 when McCain abruptly canceled a planned appearance on the show just hours before he was due to appear, claiming he had to return to Washington to deal with the financial crisis. However, Dave's producers obtained live footage of the Senator
sitting down with Katie Couric
at the same time he was supposed to be taping The Late Show
, prompting Dave to crack on McCain practically every night since.
