1. John McCain belongs to the ages. He perfectly loved this country and served it with valor, courage and integrity for 60 years. He was a patriot and a hero and America will never see a political leader like him again. He was the greatest man I’ve ever known. Godspeed, John McCain. (By @SteveSchmidtSES)


  1. I have not known anyone with greater courage, stronger convictions or more devotion to country than John McCain. He is irreplaceable, but his legacy will live wherever democracy is defended, human rights are protected, and U.S. leadership is exerted in defense of universal values. (By @madeleine)


  1. “Some lives are so vivid, it is difficult to imagine them ended. Some voices are so vibrant, it is hard to think of them stilled. John McCain was a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order.” (By @TheBushCenter)


  1. John McCain believed that every citizen has a responsibility to make something of the freedoms given by our Constitution, and from his heroic service in the Navy to his 35 years in Congress, he lived by his creed every day. (By @BillClinton)


  1. John McCain was an American hero, a man of decency and honor and a friend of mine. He will be missed not just in the U.S. Senate but by all Americans who respect integrity and independence. Jane and I send our deepest condolences to his family. (By @SenSanders)


  1. The Senate, the United States, and the world are lesser places without John McCain. (By @SenSchumer)


  1. John McCain’s finest moment (for me) came in 2008, when a woman at a rally referred to Obama as an Arab. “No, ma’am,” McCain replied. “He’s a decent family man, a citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with.” That’s manning up. (By @StephenKing)


  1. Whether I agreed or disagreed with him, I always had the utmost respect for John McCain’s values, courage, and patriotism. RIP. (By @FareedZakaria)


  1. It is impossible to look at the breadth of John McCain’s service to the country and not have your breath taken away. Truly remarkable. (By @CillizzaCNN)


  1. Giving thanks to God for the life and service of John McCain. A true American hero and statesman. And praying that God will hasten the day when his noble model of leadership will be honored in our great country again. (By @pastors4txkids)
