WASHINGTON — Sen. John McCain says he doesn’t know how much longer he has on Earth, but he is making what feels like a final appeal in his own voice to the better nature of America — just in case.The Republican from Arizona is again rejecting isolationist tendencies, citing the traditional role of the United States as the leader of the free world.McCain sounds like a man ready for whatever comes next, even talking about the venue for his burial, his beloved U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.“I’d like to go back to our valley and see the creek run after the rain, and hear the cottonwoods whisper in the wind.

WASHINGTON — Activists seeking to derail President Donald Trump’s nomination of Gina Haspel to lead the CIA are looking to Sen. John McCain to cast the deciding vote against her — assuming he is well enough to return to Washington.The 81-year-old Republican was diagnosed with brain cancer in July and last cast a vote in the Senate on early December before he returned home to Arizona for treatment.
