Hillary on McCain: Knew Meaning of Being American in 'Marrow of his Bones'

Sen. John McCain understood “in the marrow of his bones what it meant to be an American,” 2016 Democratic nominee for president Hillary Clinton said Sunday.

In a telephone interview with NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” the former Senator from New York and secretary of state praised the Arizona Republican, who died Saturday from cancer, for his legacy of bipartisanship.

“He understood in the marrow of his bones what it meant to be an American and how important it was for us to disagree and differ [and] at the end of the day, to work together and trust each other and get things done,” she said.

“He’ll be missed for many, many reasons but I think that example that he sets of working across the aisle and working to bring people together here at home and around the world is one we should remember.”

Clinton also said McCain was trying to “sound the alarm” at a time “our institutions are being severely tested.”

“If we turn or back on leadership on behalf of human rights and the kind of future we want to forge for our children and grandchildren, we’ll be giving up on what he fought for and what he was in prison for and what he stood for and in a long line of American patriots,” she said.
