Senator John McCain

 

Great national leaders are few and far between, be they members of congress or presidents. 
The last 81 years — the age at which the great senator from Arizona John McCain passed away — have produced but two handfuls. 

We have had the likes of Lyndon Baines Johnson, Sam Nunn, Richard Lugar and Richard Durbin, Sam Rayburn, Tip O’Neill, Dick Armey, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry Truman and, nominally, Ronald Reagan. Shoulder-to-shoulder or heads above all of them stood Senator John McCain.
