I did not agree with all his views, and he would not have minded at all about that. I absolutely loved that he raised his arms as high as he could. His arms raised my views to the point where I could no longer avoid questioning activism and some activist tactics. Thank you, Senator McCain, for this inspiration and for your service which only stopped when you were given this chance to rest.

R.I.P. indeed. His passing is a great loss to our country. One of the few that serve in Washington that actually believe that integrity, honor, and doing the right thing was more important than partisanship.
While I often disagreed with him, I respected him. And he, in turn, respected those who disagreed in a professional manner with him. He actually ran the Senate committee that he chaired as if the ranking Democrat on the committee was a co-chair, which meant that the committee actually prepared and passed bi-partisan funding bills every year. How many in Washington would/could count on both President Bush and President Obama to eulogize them?
