Judy Woodruff looks back on the prolific and storied career of Sen. John McCain, from his military heroism to two disappointing presidential campaigns to a reputation as a party maverick. Former Secretary of Defense William Cohen was a close friend of McCain's, serving as a groomsman at his 1980 wedding. He joins John Yang to remember McCain's irrepressible humor and “restlessness” to do more.
