Former Vice President Joe Biden says Senator John McCain embodied classic American values of decency and respect. At a memorial service for Senator McCain in Phoenix today, Biden described his friend as smart, tough, stubborn and fiercely independent. He noted that McCain hated abuse of power and believed passionately in the soul of America. Democrat Biden said he always considered Republican McCain a brother. He also joked about having a lot of "family fights." Biden and McCain served in the Senate together for many years.
