Many, many tributes have and will be written for Senator John McCain by his friends, colleagues and the admirers who knew the extraordinary man best. Nonetheless, I too feel bereft as an American and want to express my sorrow and admiration for Arizona’s senior Senator, Navy aviator and Vietnam POW who died last Saturday at 81-years-old. John McCain believed in the American exceptionalism that he embodied. He lived up to a higher ideal, to a belief in righteousness and truth that transcended politics and party. Despite not agreeing with him on every issue, I respected him as trustworthy and knew he cared more for the welfare of the American people than his own interests. He was a rarity, a statesman with integrity, and will be missed.
