    Vanceone - Provo, UT says: "Anyone care to remind me of the Democrat who is willing to reach across the aisle..."

    I didn't like Bill Clinton but I always admired how he was willing to reach across the aisle. Maybe he *had to* because of the make-up of congress, but (I thought) Obama was so rigidly idealistic that he *wouldn't* compromise, and accomplished little.

    Or maybe it made sense to ask the other senator from Arizona. Flake probably knows McCain as well as anyone else in the Senate.

    McCain was a true statesman, willing to reach across the isle and work in a bipartisan way to do what he thought was best for the country, not just for his "party".

    The partisanship must end. It is tearing the country apart and everybody knows it -- even and especially the Russians!

    Crocodile tears. It's just an act.

    Note how the national media has turned McCain into a saint, and the only person they choose to comment on his death is one of Trump's harshest critics.
    Coincidence?
    ....or continual promotion of "the liberal narrative" ?

    There are things bigger than politics. No matter what a person's political views, it's just common human decency to not only realize that but to show respect as well. John McCain was a decent human being trying to do the best he could for his family and country. Those alone are reasons to honor the man in his passing.

    If John McCains voice and accomplishments were so important explain why the congress has such low approval numbers?
