John McCain was a perfect example of how to handle political disagreement with class, dignity, and respect for the people he represented. That classic moment in the 2008 campaign when he defended Barack Obama to a misinformed voter was beyond brilliant. It’s sad that we’ve seen so little of that behavior since; I dare say we may never see it again.

Respect for those he purportedly “represented?” Since when? Given that two of the most desired recent items on the GOP voters’ agenda were to repeal Obamacare and pass immigration measures to stem the overwhelming tide of illegal aliens pouring into our country, I saw absolutely no indication of either acknowledgment for our wishes or willingness to support these measures legislatively by this petty, bitter, vindictive little man who always thought he knew better than the Republicans he claimed to serve. In fact, he was an obstinate, steadfast obstacle to getting this done because he couldn’t abide giving our president a… Read more »

Beautifully said, Soaphound. I agree. Class, dignity and respect. He will be missed by even those on the opposing side.

Always fighting the good fight and even when one disagreed with him, one respected him. We don’t see his like again. “Honor and Beauty in the Owner’s Arms, are Weakly Fortress’d in a World of Harms.”

May your soul be blessed on its’ journey, John McCain.

But, Never RIP- it’s to cease the journey and enter into Eternal Slumber.

Beautiful tribute from a daughter to her father. What a life he lived! And through it all, from what I’ve read, witnessed, he always stayed true to his convictions. His vote against that heartless attempted repeal of the healthcare act was one of bravery and conscience. In the midst of his own devastating diagnosis he had the compassion to realize that not all could afford the medical treatment he could; that many would suffer if that bill had passed. Another good person has exited. RIP John McCain. I say that with respect and gratitude for your service both in and… Read more »

I agree with a lot of what president Trump has done in his nearly two years in office BUT the one black mark I cannot forgive him for is saying that John Mccain was not a hero. MCCain went through hell and back and THEN became a politician and managed to keep a good name on both sides of the political fence. God bless you John and you’re loving family!

If a funeral can be considered “amazing” then that’s how I’d describe what I watched today. The speeches, the tributes, the music…what a beautiful, spectacular service to a man who gave so much of his time to serving. The evidence of his humanity and ability to see “across the aisle” was evident in the diversity of party, religion and race, and the two presidents who beat him to The House who he considered friends.. Instead of obsessing on who drew a bigger crowd or who won the race, he developed friendships with those he didn’t always see eye to eye… Read more »
