The name John McCain no doubt rings a bell in the Political firmament of the United States. To say that he has seen all that is to be contested for is an understatement. Senator McCain of the Republican Party is no doubt a force to be reckoned with in the Political chess game of the U.S today. He is a Senior Republican Senator in the 114th congress of the Senate.
Senator McCain once contested for the sole ticket for the Presidential election of his party but he lost out to eventual winner at the polls- George Bush. He was undaunted; he got the nod of his party and contested the Presidential election proper on his party’s platform, but this time, he lost out to eventual winner and current President, Barak Obama. Before his political sojourn, he had followed his father’s footsteps to enlist in the American Navy.
