John McCain dies

Rest in Peace, John McCain.-Assemblymember Catharine Baker, the East Bay’s lone Republican legislator, on the passing Saturday of Sen. John McCain.

One thought on “John McCain dies

  1. Good to see Dublin and Tri-Cities coverage here, Steve, even if it is a re-Tweet. Catherine is a good example of the fact that not all Cal graduates are Democrats just as not all Chicagoans are Democrats, and those who think Trump is not worth supporting are not all Democrats. John McCain was a Great American and a hero. He understood that American Democracy was about personal courage, honor, compromise and not being tied to single issues. While we may disagree with his positions on some issues, and his judgement might be in retrospect questionable (Sarah Palin), he was on the right side of immigration campaign finance reform and the Russia investigation. That he and Joe Biden were solid friends shows that he was truly a Great American.
