Cindy McCain vs Michelle Obama.

Great analysis piece on CNN about differences between Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain, and whether the potential First Ladies affect their husbands' candidacies:
    They're not elected. They're not paid. There's no precise job description.

    But whether it's an elegantly dressed Jacqueline Kennedy giving Americans a tour of the White House, Eleanor Roosevelt speaking on civil rights or Hillary Clinton saying "I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies," first ladies are praised, criticized, adored and scorned -- but never ignored.

    The two women poised for the job, 54-year-old Cindy McCain, wife of Republican Sen. John McCain, and 44-year-old Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic Sen. Barack Obama, come from strikingly different backgrounds.

I noticed the left out the bit about Cindy being a homewrecking bint. McCain threw over his crippled first wife, who waited years for him to return from Vietnam, for this floozy. He didn't even have the good grace to wait until the ink was dry on the divorce papers before marrying Cindy.

Let's see how the Republican "family values" people play Cindy meeting McCain while he was still married to his first wife. Youthful indiscretion? She was certainly youthful but McCain was 18 years older and in his 40's. So leaving the first wife who waited for you while you were a POW to chase a rich younger woman is the epitome of "family values"?
