John McCain Receives His Rare Honor

S Memorial for Sen. John Mc Cain held in Phoenix

That's when things began to change for the worse in America, in the Senate.

Beyond that, however, Biden distilled the essence of McCain and his model of optimism. On those trips, they would talk about family, politics and worldwide relations. "My god comfort his family and friends, and may god continue to bless the United States of America". "It's brutal. It's relentless".

Biden has suffered his own share of grief.

Biden told McCain's family he understood that there was nothing anyone could do to ease their pain. When that happens, he counseled, "you know you're going to make it". You know what the answer is?

'It wasn't about politics.

DUALE: Theresa May's visit should strengthen trade ties

Aung San Suu Kyi won't lose Nobel prize
Between 1989 and 2010, the Burmese leader, now 73, spent about 16 years under house arrest under the military regime. Granted, she doesn't have the military command but the least Suu Kyi could have done was condemn the crisis.

While several social media users suggested that Meghan McCain was glaring mainly because Pence mentioned Trump in his speech, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin went into further detail, writing that the senator's daughter might have been specifically reacting to Pence being a "spineless" representative of the president, who has yet to publicly condemn his controversial statements and actions. "Knowing that this project is bigger than yourself".

Biden, though, said that politics wasn't what was most important to McCain, but rather the underlying values. "The intolerance for the abuse of power". "In whatever form. In whatever country".

It is expected to be a fitting send-off for a political icon and former prisoner of war who came to epitomise respect, passionate debate and conciliation, especially in today's climate of political division. He led the fight after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to block the use of certain "enhanced interrogation" techniques approved by the Bush administration such as water boarding, in which a person is exposed to simulated drowning. He compared their disagreements over the years to fights between brothers and said McCain could always look past a specific political argument. "An ancient, antiquated code where honor, courage, character, integrity, duty, where it mattered". "I don't think it's even close". "That's what made John special, a giant among all of us".

"And so let me say to all those gathered, and his beloved family, on behalf of a grateful nation, we will ever remember that John McCain served his country". Ordinary people given half a chance are capable of doing extraordinary things. We want to be better, and McCain helped us believe that was possible. "He believed in the American people". "All 325 million of us". John McCain (R-Ariz.) as someone who exemplified basic American values: "Fairness, honesty, dignity, respect, giving hate no safe harbor, leaving no one behind, and understanding that as Americans, we're part of something much bigger than ourselves". "It's not hyperbole. It's not over", Biden said.
