Not only is she the gorgeous wife of a US Senator and fashion model gorgeous I might add, she is probably the most capable and intelligent potential First Lady or even First Lady PERIOD. The qualifications I list below are just some highlights. I think I may have gotten over my problem with John McCain, as my candidate, I choose CINDY McCAIN for Vice President!!!
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 and she was smart enough to get a pre-nup with John that insures she keeps the dough! No offense John, but she EARNED it!
She and John have a 19 year old serving in Iraq, another son in the Naval Academy, a daughter recently graduated from Columbia University, an adopted daughter (see below for her story) in high school, and a son who is the finance guy at the beer firm.
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.
She's active with 'Halo Trust' - an organization that works to clear land mines, provide water and food in war ravaged and developing countries.
She is active in the overseas mission 'Operation Smile', a charity for corrective surgery on children's faces. She makes many overseas trips, unannounced to help those in need.
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 for president and a heck of a lot more capable then Michelle for First Lady. We would really get two for the price of one. She’s a person with business and international experience. Although John did work for the firm for awhile when he left the Navy, she, however, has the real business experience. Very interesting.
Oh yes - one more thing - she has never said she is not proud of her country or that she has never been proud of her country. It seems she has just worked and acted to make it better.
