Rick Davis, who was McCain's campaign manager, said of their friendship, per NBC News: "If there's a better of exemplification of debating and throwing a few punches, but at the end of the day being able to maintain a relationship with the people you are at battle with, as the model of governance John McCain adhered to, that relationship with Biden was in the category". "He gave me a rapper's name", Morales said. Vice-President Mike Pence and congressional leaders of both parties will lay wreaths. "I swear to God".

"John McCain's impact on America is not over", Biden said.

According to Axios, the decision may be "a little premature, given that the rest of the Senate hasn't agreed to the name change".

Biden told McCain's 106-year-old mother, Roberta, who was in attendance, that he understands what it's like to be a parent burying a child, telling her the pain is all-consuming: "It's like being sucked into a black hole inside your chest, and it's frightening".
