Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.)

"I'm here because John McCain's whole life testifies to a great truth: being a Democrat or a Republican is important. But it is not more important than being an American."

Former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.)

"It's pretty clear that there are two questions we'll never have to ask ourselves [about McCain]: Who is this man, and can we trust this man with the presidency?"

President George W. Bush

"I know what it takes to be president, and these past eight years, I've sat at the resolute desk. John McCain's life has prepared him to make those choices. He is ready to be president."

First Lady Laura Bush

"I'm glad that America's first female vice president will be a Republican woman."
