"Our hearts and prayers are with you!" He taught me a lot, and I am stunned that we won't have him in the Senate anymore.

The office of Barack and Michelle Obama released a statement on the death of Mr McCain, in which Mr Obama wrote that despite all their differences, they shared "a fidelity to something higher - the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched and sacrificed". "When I first met him, he was pretty intimidating and chairman of the Armed Services Committee, two-time presidential candidate, a global leading figure, and he could be gruff, and he put me through my paces, but once you demonstrated to him you would stand up for your own principles and push back and debate with him, he was a remarkable friend and great mentor". John McCain's (R-AZ) death, cutting to an episode of "America's Got Talent" that showed a disturbing scene involving two men dressed as dolphins. And for that, we are all in his debt. But none was more poignant than his wife Cindy's words.

Bush also released a statement on Mr McCain's passing, writing how hard it is to imagine that such a vivid life has ended. John McCain was a man of deep conviction and a patriot of the highest order.

"He was a public servant in the finest traditions of our country". You and I are the only ones who have been on a national ticket and lost. Those were causes greater than himself and party politics. And the spirit that drove him was never extinguished: "we are here to commit ourselves to something bigger than ourselves". One of McCain's eight trousers on Fire ratings came when he claimed he never considered himself a maverick.

McCain's birth became the topic of a PolitiFact report in 2008 because McCain's father, John S. McCain Jr., was serving in the Panama Canal zone when McCain's mother Roberta gave birth. "God bless John McCain".

"John McCain is one American who will never be forgotten". He was a giant. McCain is a true America hero. But here at home, we were most proud to call him a fellow Arizonan.

More politicians remembered McCain including former Vice President Joe Biden, who wrote a statement on behalf of his family. "It's tough to imagine politics without John McCain".

That's what Senator McCain's entire life was about. "My thoughts are with his family and loved ones". There will be a service for McCain in Arizona this week, a Republican close to the McCain family told CNN. "Canadians join Americans tonight in celebrating his life and mourning his passing".

"I'll ask Democrats and Independents to serve with me in my administration".

"The nation is in tears". McCain, however, fought for what he believed was right until the very end.

"I understand the discipline and the things that go along about being a service person and protecting our freedoms", Edwards said.

Durbin recalled working with McCain in the so-called "gang of eight", a bipartisan group of senators who tried to reach a compromise on immigration back in 2013.
