What a breath of fresh air. Joe Biden spoke today at John McCain’s memorial service in Arizona. He spoke as a friend, colleague and “brother” of the late Senator. But there was something more. In these continuously fractious times, where we are bombarded with hate, fear, and what feels like a trillion tweets, it was soothing to hear the words of a statesman. Watch the entire eulogy above.
This eulogy by Joe Biden, a man who has faced more than his fair share of tragedy and loss, is incredible. Yes, it will fan the flames of his potential 2020 run, but this is the type of stuff a country in mourning needs to hear

Biden's closing line in eulogy for McCain: "To paraphrase Shakespeare: We shall not see his like again."
