Back in the day, when I was sitting on an airplane more likely than not, I had many occasions to interface with McCain. HP had a great 4pm departure out of DCA to PHX (connected to a flight to MRY). McCain was generally on that flight, every Friday evening, and I was as well - every other Friday. Had a girl I was seeing and she was in MRY, very convenient flight time.
I have sat with him quite often (goes without saying in F). Never talked politics, mostly didn't talk 'war' but we did talk military. He had a sense of humor. I consider him a decent person, always talked about taking care of the military, taking care of other people.
I voted for him (and that idiot Palin) in the 2008 go for the White House.
I have also read war stories and (supposed) horror about him.
All that said, I think he did a decent job for Arizona. I think he did the best he could for the country as a US Senator. He is pretty well respected by most people I know.
Rest Peaceful Senator.
