    Tude Dog I didn't realize Cindy was a possibility.

    I don't expect the Governor to choose Cindy.

    Watching all the formalities - they nearly dropped the casket.
    it's obvious Meghan was John's little girl - Meghan was/is a mess - looks a little sedated.
    Thousands are lining up - standing in our heat @ 106 to pay respects at the Capital.
    Amazing

    There has long been a provision for an office-holder's spouse to take over the unfinished term until the next scheduled election.

    Don't understand the logic, but that has been done many times in the History of the Country, not yet in Arizona.

    Must be annoying Donald Trump somewhat.

    Watching both former presidents Bush & Obama was interesting, especially Obama.


    I am no fan of President Obama, but Trump came along to make him look good.

    President Obama speaking at McCain's funeral He noted that McCain “championed a free and independent press that’s vital to our democratic debate,” a clear swipe at Trump’s repeated attacks on the news media.

    And taking on politics directly, Obama addressed Trump without ever saying his name...

    “So much of our politics can seem small and mean and petty. Trafficking in bombast and insult, phony controversies and manufactured outrage. It’s a politics that pretends to be brave and tough, but is instead born of fear. John called on us to be bigger than that, to be better that that,” Obama said. “Today is only one day in all the days that will ever be, but what will happen in all the other days will depend on what you do today. What better way to honor John McCain than follow his example.”

    I watched the good bye to Senator John McCain from A-Z..
    What a send off .
    I was very proud of Meghan McCain - her eulogy / speech was dynamite.

    My question - Az Governor can choose whom to fill John's position & I realize Cindy could be a choice - could Meghan fill her father's position? Is Meghan in position to be a choice?
    I think this Meghan McCain will run for pres. - She is her father..

    Lars - I figured out "OF Course" - When Sonny Bono died his wife fulfilled his position.
