“We are all in his debt. John McCain and I were members of different generations, came from completely different backgrounds and competed at the highest level of politics.

“But we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher — the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched and sacrificed.”
