On 26 August 2018 The Associated Press reported: Presidents past and present joined members of Congress from both parties and world leaders in mourning Senator John McCain and praising him for a lifetime of service and accomplishments. Former U.S. Presidents, including those who blocked McCain's own White House ambitions, offered emotional tributes. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of government, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Former President Obama, who triumphed over McCain in the 2008 Presidential election, said that despite their differences, McCain and he shared a 'fidelity to something higher -- the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed.' ...

Former President George W. Bush, who defeated McCain for the 2000 Republican Presidential nomination, called McCain a 'man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order' and a 'friend whom I'll deeply miss.'

McCain was the son and grandson of admirals and followed them to the U.S. Naval Academy. A pilot, he was shot down over Vietnam and held as a prisoner of war for more than five years. He went on to win a seat in the House and in 1986, the Senate, where he served for the rest of his life. ...

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who developed a friendship with McCain while they served together in the Senate, said the Arizona lawmaker will 'cast a long shadow.'

'The spirit that drove him was never extinguished: we are here to commit ourselves to something bigger than ourselves,' Mr. Biden said.

The Senate's top Democrat, New York's Chuck Schumer, said he wants to rename the Senate building that housed McCain's suite of offices after McCain.

'As you go through life, you meet few truly great people. John McCain was one of them,' Senator Schumer said. 'Maybe most of all, he was a truth teller -- never afraid to speak truth to power in an era where that has become all too rare.'
