Senator McCain's Speech at the New School

I may not always agree with Senator John McCain, but I will always respect him. He epitomizes love of country and dedication to public service. Today, the Wall Street Journal published the text of his speech at the Commencement Ceremony of the New School in New York City, in which he gave voice to his ideals. It is worth reading.

Lowell adds: Ralph is right, the speech is statesmanlike and inspiring. The manner in which the New School audience received the speech, reported here, is also thought-provoking, if less inspiring.

The speech is all the more noteworthy given the context of the uproar at the New School. McCain chose to address, rather than avoid, the disagreements that divide Americans. And he did so in a constructive way, providing a fitting contrast to the temper tantrums so typical of the angry left, especially some on college campuses who try to trumpet their "openness"--except, obviously, to ideas with which they disagree, in which case suppression and intimidation, the vices they like to pin on the right, are the order of the day.
