We Need More Civility in Politics
Just ask Cindy McCain
Cindy McCain, wife of the late Sen. John McCain, recently wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post calling for more civility in politics. She refers to her husband’s remarkable ability for tact and mutual respect, writing, “… John never sacrificed civility. He liked and respected most of his colleagues, however heated their debates could be. He was known for his bipartisan friendships.”
In recognition of the one-year anniversary of the senator’s passing, McCain and her family are putting out a national call-to-action she’s branded #ActsofCivility. She wrote, “So, today, I am asking all Americans to take a pledge of civility by committing to causes larger than ourselves and joining together across the aisle or whatever divides us to make the world a better place.”
How does she plan to put this campaign into practice? We reached out to McCain for this exclusive Q&A.
