In a column for Politico, Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren reveals one of her biggest inspirations in life is Roberta McCain, the 101-year-old mother of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
Van Susteren writes that the relationship between her and Roberta began back during the 2008 presidential election, when she interviewed Roberta about then-Republican presidential nominee John. Now she stops by Roberta’s place just to hang:
At least once a week, I go to her apartment and we have cookies, coffee — silver service and china cups, of course — and talk. Most days we chat about politics (she has lots to say) and current events. She has lots to say about those, too. …
During my tough days with my husband’s health (who is now fine), she was there. If I need work advice (and who doesn’t?), there is no one wiser. She can keep a secret. And laugh? Oh … she can be funny, especially when she is pushing the buttons of her sons. (And I won’t talk out of school, but she sure can push their buttons — and good for her!)
