Didn’t always (read: hardly ever) agree with McCain politically but I’ve always liked and admired him as a person. No doubt a lot of people feel this way. How could one not? He’s an incredibly likeable (if not loveable) guy.
So, it’s terribly sad and unfortunate that his life his ending and in such a painful way.
He’s been a most colorful character on the scene for as long as most can remember. He’s also been one of the most unique politicians of which whose vote you could not predict entirely based on his political party. So many times did this man’s independence cause Claude to jump up and cheer gratefully. Anyway, I’d like to give thanks-aloud to, and for, this guy while he’s alive.
