John McCain’s death leads to outpouring from foes and allies

McCain died on Saturday in Arizona, more than a year after he was diagnosed with brain cancer. In a send-up of Barack Obama's expensive 30-minute campaign ad, which ran on several broadcast and cable networks, McCain and Fey's Palin talked up their potential administration (and some quality products) for the QVC audience. "It's tough to imagine politics without John McCain, but we need to go on". "Prayers and love to your family", wrote Cameron, who led Britain between 2010 and 2016.

Final details of the service were not released as of Sunday morning. "At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years", the family said in a statement. "He showed us that boundless patriotism and self-sacrifice are not outdated concepts or cliches, but the building blocks of an extraordinary life". RIP Senator John McCain.

Former president Bill Clinton said McCain "lived by his creed".

"One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never countenance is that we drafted the lowest-income level of America, and the highest-income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur", he said.

Obama said they "saw our political battles, even, as a privilege, something noble, an opportunity to serve as stewards of those high ideals at home, and to advance them around the world".

Elsewhere on Twitter, McCain's trying years in the military were noted among commemorators as a defining feature of the Vietnam War veteran's life. McCain said that upon capture he was beaten by an angry mob and bayoneted in the groin. For as long as I can remember, Senator McCain struggled to raise his arms above his shoulder, a fact we'd forgotten when coming up with the Akubra as our gift. McCain delivered the speech with a winning earnestness and subtle comic timing, proving once again that he understood the value of self-parody when it came to winning the hearts and minds of the American people. John McCain was a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order.

"He was a public servant in the finest traditions of our country". "My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain".

French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted in English that McCain "was a true American hero".

Other plans were taking shape, too. Sen.

Calling McCain a friend, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted that the senator's support for Israel "sprang from his belief in democracy and freedom". "I'll remember the good times... and I won't re-hash the odd times that happened after the campaign that some of his people orchestrated". "With the Senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family".

"He frequently put partisanship aside to do what he thought was best for the country, and was never afraid to break the mould if it was the right thing to do".

"I will always be especially grateful for his leadership in our successful efforts to normalise relations with Vietnam".

McCain was a newcomer to Arizona when he won an open seat for the state in the House of Representatives.

Colleagues of McCain, 81, had been bracing for the worst for months as the Arizona senator retreated from public life to fight the disease.

The eternal comeback kid, in March 2008, John McCain clinched enough delegates to embark on the race for the White House.

Although the presidency would elude McCain twice - in 2000 and again in 2008 - he remained one of the most influential voices in the Senate, particularly in the area of foreign policy. McCain's 2011 prediction that Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, whom Russian Federation backs militarily, would not survive long has proven untrue, Pushkov noted, adding that "Assad's overthrow and death did not wait for McCain".
