John McCain Already Thinking About 2016 Election

Senator John McCain's not too eager to go away.

McCain said on a KFYI show that he's "seriously thinking about maybe" running for reelection in 2016 -- the year he turns 80 years old.

McCain further clarified to KFYI that he's thinking about another run.

A little more than a month ago, McCain said this was "probably" his last term.

Then he said he'll wait a few years before he runs again.

Now he says he's thinking about it.

To be clear, McCain is/is not running in 2016, and is/is not thinking about it right now.
