"My fellow Americans. No association ever mattered more to me. We're not always right. We're impetuous and impatient, and rush into things without knowing what we're really doing. We argue over little differences endlessly, and exaggerate them into lasting breaches. We can be selfish, and quick sometimes to shift the blame for our mistakes to others. But our country ''tis of Thee.' What great good we've done in the world, so much more good than harm."
- John McCain and Mark Salter
