John McCain's advice for Mitt Romney: "The best medicine for defeat is to get busy"

Nine days since Barack Obama completed his campaign for the presidency, successfully defeating Mitt Romney and earning a second term in the White House, this evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes the one man who knows exactly what it feels like to lose a presidential election to the former senator from Illinois: John McCain.

The Arizona Senator shares some insight into how he coped with defeat in 2008:

"I have a great line that I use all the time: 'After I lost, I slept like a baby – sleep two hours, wake up and cry. Sleep two hours, wake up and cry,'" delivers McCain. "The best medicine for defeat is to get busy. Because it's so wonderful to feel sorry for yourself, but that really doesn't gain you much. So get busy, and get it behind you." Watch more here.
