Barack Obama @BarackObama Our statement on the passing of Senator John McCain Our Statement on the Passing of Senator John McCain 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 We saw our political battles even as a privilege something noble an opportunity to serve as stewards of those high ideals at home and to advance them around the world We saw this country as a place where anything is possible- and citizenship as our patriotic obligation to ensure it forever remains that way Few of us have been tested the way John once was or required to show the kind of courage that he did But all of us can aspire to the courage to put the greater good above our own At John's best he showed us what that means And for that we are all in his debt Michelle and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Cindy and their family 82618 409 AM 71K Retweets 257K Likes Barack mourning the passing of his friend Meme
