WASHINGTON — Sen. John McCain and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham
Clinton may be from different parties. But they share a friendship forged in the
Senate and on fact-finding trips around the globe — not to mention vodka shots
Clinton and McCain are appearing together Saturday in Sedona, Ariz., at the
McCain Institute’s annual gathering of political, business and philanthropic
leaders. The invitation-only forum comes as Clinton presents an above-the-fray
image in speeches that often criticize the polarization of national politics.
The speeches could serve as a warm-up to a 2016 presidential campaign.
Last month, McCain was a guest of the Clintons at their annual meeting of
college students in Arizona. The former first lady has worked with the senator’s
wife, Cindy McCain, on an early childhood initiative.
