In case it wasn’t obvious already, months before his death, McCain wrote in his last memoir that he regretted not picking Joseph Lieberman. Palin called that revelation a “gut punch.”
It’s sad and frightening that Sarah Palin ever came so close to living in the White House. However it is TRAGIC that she was able to help get Trump elected. Perhaps the death of John McCain will serve as a wake up call to mainstream America to bring us together. Tragedy often make us stronger for having survived it together. America has suffered the tragedy of the nomination of Palin, the election of Trump, and the death of John McCain.
Joe Biden remembered John McCain:
“It was always about basic values with John. Fairness, honesty, dignity, respect. Giving hate no safe harbor, leaving no one behind. And understanding that as Americans we are a part of something much bigger than ourselves” https://cnn.it/2Nviy8Z
I think that is what Meghan McCain was making reference to. America WAS great before Trump was elected. Now, we can make America great again by remembering the principles of fairness, honesty, dignity, and respect.
