Republican Senator and 2008 Presidential nominee, John McCain has died, one day after his family announced that he had stopped treatment for his brain cancer.

Senator McCain served with honor and distinction in our nation's military, and was a 100% legitimate war hero in Vietnam. I won't pretend to have been an admirer of his political career, as I disagreed with him more often than not, although I did reluctantly vote for him in 2008. I think, however, that he always did what he believed was right.

EDIT: Some final thoughts on the Senator, in his own words:
John McCain wrote:
“I’ve had the good fortune to spend 60 years in service to this wondrous land,” he said. “It has not been perfect service, to be sure, and there were probably times when the country might have benefited from a little less of my help.

“But I’ve tried to deserve the privilege as best I can, and I’ve been repaid a thousand times over with adventures, with good company, and with the satisfaction of serving something more important than myself, of being a bit player in the extraordinary story of America,” he said. “And I am so very grateful.”
