Senator McCain Receives 2017 Liberty Medal Senator John McCain (R-AZ) was honored with the National Constitution Center’s 2017 Liberty Medal in Philadelphia. The medal is awarded each year to those who show leadership in upholding basic freedoms around the world. Former Vice President Joe Biden delivered keynote remarks and presented Senator McCain with the award. Other speakers included Starbucks Executive Chair Howard Schultz, University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann, and National Constitution Center CEO Jeffrey Rosen. The event also included a video tribute from notable public figures. Senator McCain in his remarks praised the ideals and opportunities the U.S. has upheld and offered throughout its history, but he warned against the dangers of a climate of isolationist politics and abandoning “the ideals we have advanced around the globe... for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism.” close
