Looks like there may be peace in our time, after all. At least as far as unlikely reconcilers Ludacris and Sen. John McCain are concerned.

The lightning-rod rapper made nice with the politico during Sunday's NBA All-Star Game, offering an apology to both the senator and wife Cindy McCain for any offense caused by Luda's inflammatory rant against the onetime presidential candidate in his song, "Politics (Obama is Here)."

The rapper made headlines last summer, and earned himself an official rebuke from President Barack Obama's campaign, as a result of the rap, which included the roundly offensive lyric, "McCain don't belong in any chair unless he's paralyzed."

On Sunday, however, Ludacris was apparently back in gentleman mode, approaching the McCains at Phoenix's U.S. Airways Center during a break in the game and offering a handshake and an apology to the couple.

The trio was sitting near each other during the game and spoke pleasantly for several minutes.

Also on hand to witness the reconciliation: Eva Longoria, who was seated next to Cindy, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Corbin Bleu and Spike Lee.
