John McCain's family cries over flag-draped casket

Perhaps this is why McCain holds such a prominent spot in The Hall of Losers.

The first time the day's media pool - the rotating group of reporters that monitor a president's movements and some events - tried to get the president's thoughts about McCain's death came during a late-morning Oval Office announcement of a preliminary trade pact with Mexico.

A hearse bearing McCain's body arrived at the Phoenix statehouse with a police motorcycle escort for a brief ceremony honoring the Arizona senator, who died of brain cancer on August 25 at age 81.

Her daughter Meghan McCain, co-host of the television talk show "The View", sobbed openly.

"The fact is that John McCain is a genuine hero of the only kind Vietnam now has to offer, a hero not because of what he did but because of what he suffered - voluntarily, for a Code", Wallace wrote.

Davis said for McCain,"the opportunity to be in the arena, to make a statement, to engage in an issue, to throw a couple punches: That was always more important to him than a couple hours of sleep". He is the only name to make the list twice, because, as Ken once said, McCain's gimmicky Straight Talk Express in his 2000 primary run against George W. Bush was insane and his support for The War on Terror in 2008-even as the global economy tanked-was detestable.

He would have turned 82 years old on Wednesday.

In a bitterly fractured Washington, Mr McCain stood up against extremism and worked across party lines to build consensus in a Senate split 51-49 for Republicans.

"I grew up where a handshake was a contract and your word was your bond", Riordan said.

Ducey said John McCain was about more than politics, he "brought us above politics".

"Yesterday I asked my son who his hero was". I would say, 'Relax!

For some Arizona residents, McCain has been a political fixture for their entire lives. He took office in the state in the early 1980s, first as a congressman and then as a senator in the seat once held by Sen.

A McCain family spokesperson said the Capitol doors would remain open as long as there are people in line preparing to honor John McCain. "My biggest challenge is deciding whether to run for reelection in 2020", he said McCain told him. "If you believe in something, stand up for it, whether it's popular or not".

Thursday morning will feature a procession through Phoenix on the way to a memorial service at North Phoenix Baptist Church, with the public invited to line the route along Interstate 17.

McCain will then depart Arizona for another viewing Friday at the U.S. Capitol, with a final memorial service at the Washington National Cathedral, followed by burial at the academy.

Former Vice President Joe Biden will be among those paying tribute to the deceased senator.
