RE: Cindy McCain
There was an article in the Wall Street Journal on Cindy McCain, John McCain's wife. 
     All I ever saw was this attractive woman standing beside him. 
     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.
    She and Sen. John McCain 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 serves on their board.
    The McCains have a 19 year old serving in Iraq, another son in the Naval Academy, a daughter who 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). Hecommuted.
    In 1991, Mrs. McCain came across a girl in an orphanage in Bangladesh. Mother Teresa implored Mrs. McCain to take the baby who had a 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. 
     Very interesting.

Wow.  I have to say I'm surprised he lets her work...considering McCain thinks women "need education and training."

I wonder if he voted for her to NOT get equal pay to a man.  Oh, wait.  No he didn't...because he didn't VOTE.

Yes, let us not forget that she was addicted to pain killers for 3 years and her husband didn't know-Take care of your home bfore the nation!! She had someone else tell her hubby because she couldn't do it.

And, She stole from a charity that she was a member of to feed her addiction-OOPS!

And, She was having an affair with Mr.Mccain when he was married to someone else! HMMM!?

She is a spoiled woman from a rich family!!
