ABC News’ Bret Hovell reports: Sen. John McCain is scheduled to be a guest on Late Night with David Letterman on Thursday night, a McCain aide tells ABC News.

The Arizona senator just returned from an overseas trip that took him to Iraq, Afghanistan, India and Bangladesh, among other countries.

The interview on Letterman will be his second late-night appearance since the election — his first post-election interview after Nov 4th was with the Tonight Show’s Jay Leno.

During the campaign, McCain got into a verbal scrape with Letterman when he canceled an appearance on the show to suspend his campaign and work on what became the TARP legislation. 

Letterman ridiculed him for canceling, but the two made up a few weeks later when McCain returned to the show.

McCain will also appear exclusively on This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday for his first Sunday morning interview since the election.
