fw: Getting to know Cindy McCain

This is interesting, it’s even more interesting that the liberal media doesn’t even mention this woman…!
(But, they probably will.)

This is a summary of the article on:

Getting to know 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.
    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 the countries on a detonation team and served 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.
    Very interesting.

Even loyal, right-wing fundamentalist Bushies will love this!
 
 

Dick Cheney and George W. Bush are having breakfast at the White House. The attractive waitress asks Cheney what he would like, and he replies, ‘I’d like a bowl of oatmeal and some fruit.”

‘And what can I get for you, Mr. President?’

George W. looks up from his menu and replies with his trademark wink and slight grin, ‘How about a quickie this morning?’

”Why, Mr. President!’ the waitress exclaims. ‘How rude! You’re starting to act like President Clinton,’ and she storms away.

Cheney leans over to Bush and whispers, ‘It’s pronounced ‘quiche’.’
