Obama Reportedly Surprised by McCain’s Eulogy Request

Former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush will pay tribute to Sen. John McCain during a Saturday funeral service at the Washington National Cathedral.

In April, McCain, who died at age 81 on Aug. 25 after a battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer, called Obama and asked him to deliver one of the eulogies at his funeral.

Obama agreed that he would.

“He was taken aback by the request, aides say, as was George W. Bush, another former rival, who received a similar call from McCain this spring,” reports CNN.

Obama, who defeated McCain in the 2008 election, said in a statement that he and McCain “were members of different generations, came from completely different backgrounds, and competed at the highest level of politics.”

He added, “But we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher — the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed.”
