IN OUR PODCAST INTERVIEW EARLIER THIS WEEK, John McCain delivered a lot of I Told You Sos. This YouTube video from 2000 suggests that he might add his assessment of Time Man of the Year Vladimir Putin to that list.

The other striking thing about this video, though, is how much younger both McCain and Bush look. Well, the years since haven’t been easy ones.
