There was an article in the Wall Street Journal on Cindy McCain, John's
wife. All I ever saw was this attractive woman standing beside John. I was
surprised how talented and involved with world problems she is. This is a
summary of the article. She graduated from Southern Cal and was a
special-needs teacher.

After her Dad died she became involved with his beer distributing firm and
is now the chairwoman. Sales have doubled since she has taken over from her
father. They have a marriage prenuptial agreement, her assets remain
separate.

She is involved around the world clearing land mines - travels to these
countries on a detonation team and service on their board.

They have a 19 year old serving in Iraq, another son in the Naval Academy, a
daughter recently graduated from Columbia Univ., an adopted daughter in high
school, and a son who is the finance guy at the beer firm. Raised kids in
Phoenix, AZ rather than Washington DC. better atmosphere) He commuted.

In 1991, Mrs. McCain came across a girl in an orphanage in Bangladesh.
Mother Teresa implored Mrs. McCain to take the baby with severe cleft
palate. She did so without first telling her husband. The couple adopted
the girl who has had a dozen operations to repair her cleft palate and other
medical problems.

They have a Family Foundation for children's causes. She's active with "Halo
Trust" - to clear land mines, provide water and food in war ravaged and
developing countries.

She will join an overseas mission of "Operation Smile", a charity for
corrective surgery on children's faces.

She has had two back surgeries and became addicted to
pain killers. She talks openly about it which she says is part of the
recovery process.

I'm surprised the media is so quiet about her attributes. She sounds more
capable than Hillary or Obama. We would really get two for the price of
one. A person with business and international experience. John did work
for the firm for awhile when he left the Navy. She, however, has the real
business experience.

More insight on them than I've read anywhere...the folks that bash him for not cutting and running in Iraq don't ever mention that he has a son serving there....that would be fair......

If he'd just been caught red-handed with a couple of 16-year-olds...I'd still have to vote for him...the other two are even worse than that would be....under no circumstances do we dare let either one win....
