McCain-Obama, part 2

From NBC's Kelly O'Donnell
The president and Sen. McCain had another exchange with a decidedly different, less agitated tone. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell interrupted the president while he was discussing with Rep. Ryan changes that would eliminate Medicare Advantage to say that McCain wanted to say something. This was apparently McCain's chance to finish a thought cut off earlier in the day that drew much attention.

McCain asked emphatically why if the president supported ending Medicare Advantage would 800,000 seniors in Florida would get to keep their Medicare Advantage while seniors elsewhere in the country would not. The president paused and said McCain made a "good point." McCain appeared to be ready to keep going and then caught himself, smiled and  simply said, "Thank you."

The president shot a wide smile (and perhaps winked), and there were laughs. One might interpret it as an olive branch after the testy exchange earlier today.
