John McCain's presidential dreams just won't die.

Our fearless senator took the stage of The Tonight Show last night, and joked with host Conan O'Brien about demanding a recount of the 2008 presidential election.

"I land in the airport today, LAX, and I'm walking through and everybody said, 'I loved for you. I voted for you. I voted for you!' I should demand a recount, you think?"

No. John; we don't.

Here's our guess: Either the Maverick happened to bump into one of the six people in California who actually voted for him, or tourists from a red state.
