    Bet you would have never guessed this one! No matter your politics. The media will never tell of this, so pass it on.

    Cindy McCain

    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 serves 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.&nb sp; Very interesting.

    John McCain's Sons

    Talk about putting your most valuable where your mouth is! Apparently this was not 'newsworthy' enough for the media to comment about. Can either of the other presidential candidates truthfully come close to this? Just a question for each of us to seek an answer, and not a statement.

    You see character is what's shown when the public is not looking. There were no cameras or press invited to what you are about to read about, and the story comes from one person in New Hampshire

    One evening last July, Senator John McCain of Arizona arrived at the New Hampshire home of Erin Flanagan for sandwiches, chocolate-chip cookies and a heartfelt talk about Iraq . They had met at a presidential debate, when she asked the candidates what they would do to bring home American soldiers,soldiers like her brother, who had been killed in action a few months earlier.

    Mr. McCain did not bring cameras or press. Instead, he brought his youngest son, James McCain, 19, then a private first class in the Marine Corps about to leave for Iraq . Father and son sat down to hear more about Ms. Flanagan's brother Michael Cleary,a 24-year-old Army First Lieutenant killed by an ambush roadside bomb.

    No one mentioned the obvious: In just days, Jimmy McCain could face similar perils. 'I can't imagine what it must have been like for them as they were coming to meet with a family that Ms. Flanagan recalled, choking up. 'We lost a dear one,' she finished.

    Mr. McCain, now the Republican nominee, has staked his candidacy on the promise that American troops can bring stability to Iraq . What he almost never says is that one of them is his own son, who spent seven months patrolling Anbar Province and learned of his father's New Hampshire victory in January while he was digging a stuck military vehicle out of the mud.

    Two of Jimmy's three older brothers went into the military. Doug McCain, 48, was a Navy pilot. Jack McCain, 21, is to graduate from the Naval Academy next year, raising the chances that his father, if elected, could become the first president since Dwight D. Eisenhower with a son at war.

    I lived in AZ for 30 yrs and never heard that rumour, Alva.

    Was Your dad in the Mob, Eh? Sounds like a cheap liberal shot to me.

    But if ya want to talk about moblike activities, the liberals need to look no further than the Kennedy family history and old Joe's illegal alcohol dealings and other questionable business associates.

    Thats the only way a liberal can justify someone being successful in a capitalist system is if they did something illegal. In fact the only way a liberal can be successful is to go into politics that way they are putting their best skill to work, lying.

    I wasn't name calling. I was asking a question. Besides, even John McCain called her a prostitute. What does he know that we don't know?

    It isn't a sin to be successful in business, in fact an obvious goal. Good for her if she can afford to spend time on clearing land mines.

    Alvagoldbook, you may be on here just trying to stir the pot, whatever I don't care what your agenda is or isn't. You were successful at getting under my skin. Congratulations!!! You are now on my ignore list. When I see that you've posted, I know it's just more pinko, commie propaganda.
