McCain, Lieberman receive NDU Foundation award
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4, 2011 -- Senior defense and national security leaders were on hand here yesterday as the National Defense University Foundation honored Arizona Sen. John McCain and Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman at its American Patriot Award dinner.


...

CIA Director David H. Petraeus, a retired Army general, said McCain and Lieberman have "walked point here in Washington for our troopers, intelligence professionals and diplomats -- two men who have answered the call of duty over expediency, the call of country over party."

The senators have worked from their convictions to implement policies to meet wartime goals, Petraeus said, even when their positions were not politically popular.

The American Patriot Award recognizes people who have dedicated their lives in service to the United States. "But more importantly, it's the ideals of our nation that they represent," said Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, Army chief of staff. "As a result of their efforts, today we have the strongest armed forces in the world as we continue to fight and serve across many continents."

1. I used to rather like McCain. He was a Republican I could like.
But that was a long time ago. He's just a bitter old man now. And I never cared for Lieberman.

4. Of course they had to award to both - they're joined at the buttocks.
Isn't that obvious?
