WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton may be from different parties. But they share a friendship forged in the Senate and on fact-finding trips around the globe -- not to mention vodka shots in Estonia.

Clinton and McCain are appearing together Saturday in Sedona, Ariz., at the McCain Institute's annual gathering of political, business and philanthropic leaders. The invitation-only forum comes as Clinton presents an above-the-fray image in speeches that often criticize the polarization of national politics. The speeches could serve as a warm-up to a 2016 presidential campaign.

Last month, McCain was a guest of the Clintons at their annual meeting of college students in Arizona. The former first lady has worked with the senator's wife, Cindy McCain, on an early childhood initiative.
