McCain tribute crosses both sides of the political aisle

The passing of John McCain, 81, to brain cancer, left both sides of the political aisle praising the Republican known as a conservative maverick. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1958-1981, and as a Senator from Arizona from 1987 until 2018. His latter years witnessed him move to more moderate positions, with many expecting him to officially switch sides. One of his most brave decisions was choosing Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate in 2008, a bold and risky move. She became a target of the left and much of the media, some saying she cost him the presidency. Upon his death she tweeted, “John never took the easy path in life – and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self. Even after his less than flattering words about her, Palin was able to say, “John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times,” a lesson in grace from the former Governor of Alaska.
