    Is John McCain still consider a Maverick ?

    just a Conservative Republican, or Tea Party politician ?


    It's not because John McCain doesn't care. It's because John McCain doesn't get it.

    John McCain is not an ideological conservative. He is a conservativish fellow who is motivated by a strong sense of honor. This can make him seem (and, in fact, be) incredibly stubborn at times when others do not understand why he refuses to capitulate, but also dangerously unpredictable.

    he has the right to be respected as a former soldier and also respect for how he came through his ordeals during the war, as a politician I have limited respect for the man. Sure, he has done some good things but mostly he will be remembered as a failed presidential candidate who was dumb enough to select Sarah Palin as his running mate.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Maverick?

    Maybe - sort of - barely.

    Whatever though - he will be 80 in a few years and no one should be allowed to serve in federal politics past 80.

    So he will not be around for much longer on the political scene.
