WASHINGTON - The United States needs to deploy a high-level envoy, like former President Bill Clinton, to help negotiate a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, a top US politician said on Sunday.

Senator John McCain, the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee who lost his 2008 presidential bid to President Barack Obama, said Washington needed to show it was serious about wanting peace in the Middle East and sending someone as senior as Clinton would help.

"The United States of America has got to push as hard as we can to resolve this Israeli-Palestinian issue," McCain said on CBS's "Face the Nation" program. "So many events are hinged on making that process go forward."
