McCain gets the call but he's not selected...

Senator McCain does jury duty PHOENIX (AP) -- Call him Citizen McCain. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., spent Thursday in Phoenix Municipal Court awaiting possible jury duty and fielding questions from other potential jurors. Asked what he was doing there, he responded, "I'm a citizen." His congressional schedule kept him from serving jury duty until this week. "Since a lot of citizens inconvenience themselves to serve, there's no reason for me not to inconvenience myself. You meet nice people, too," he said. He spent the morning reading newspapers and fielding occasional questions in the jury assembly room but was called into a courtroom in the afternoon to be considered for a DUI case. McCain didn't make the jury.
