David Letterman on Thursday addressed rumors that first appeared in the New York Post that John McCain would appear on his show and that the two would bury the hatchet after McCain dropped out of an appearance two weeks ago at the last minute, citing the need to return to Washington to deal with the economic crisis, but instead headed for an interview with Katie Couric. Letterman confirmed that such negotiations were underway but that the McCain backers were being "squirrely." During his monologue Letterman remarked, "In an attempt to save his campaign, they're talking about coming back. You see what I'm saying? So we said, 'Sure, we would love you to come back.' And even on the phone, he said, 'I'll bring...Sarah.'" Letterman said that although the McCain backers were aware that he tapes his show at 5 30 p.m. in New York, they were insisting that the interview take place a half hour earlier. Suggesting that he was reluctant to accommodate him, Letterman said, "We have no guarantee he's going to show up, period. ... I just don't know if we can trust him. And by the way, I don't need to remind you that the road to the White House runs right through here."
