On his Tuesday show, CNN's Jake Tapper highlighted an apparently big shift in John McCain's position on the release of prisoner Bowe Bergdahl from Afghanistan.

In true Tim Russert style, Tapper played footage of McCain decrying the deal to exchange five Taliban prisoners in Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl, who was being held in Afghanistan. He then said, "Senator McCain in February sounded very different when asked by Anderson Cooper about a deal very much like this." Cut to new video of McCain saying that an exchange was something he would "seriously consider" and be open to if it meant that Bergdahl would be returned to America.
