A photo from Barack and Michelle Obama’s wedding (they look exhausted…like they were doing the Electric Slide)
John And Cindy McCain’s wedding photo is shown above. She was 24 and he was 41. He just looks happy not to be in Vietnam (he was a P.O.W.).
After watching George Bush in action these last few years, I am a firm believer that world leaders should be subjected to mental exams. Don’t laugh, I’m serious.
Based on published interviews, John McCain still has some hostility towards Asians, over the 5 ½ years he spent being tortured as a P.O.W.

America is at such a delicate place in world history due to all the damage George Bush has caused, via the war in Iraq, and various international leaders and diplomats he enraged with his deeds, statements and snubs. Therefore, next president will need to be someone that can calm down international hostility, not further inflame them.
The next president will need to be a fence mender. A name restorer. A person of peace. Given the regrettable things that happened to McCain, is he up to that task.
What is his mental state after the terrible psychological and physical damage that was inflicted upon him. What is his temper like. These are very important questions, because with the current state of the world, with war and nuclear conflicts raging, how would he handle that.
Michelle, wife of Democratic nominee Barack Obama
The youth vote could make or break the 2008 U.S. presidential election, depending on turn out at the polls in November. A new article explores how young voters view the candidates’ wives and in turn them as politicians.

Young voters split on Michelle Obama, don’t know Cindy McCain
WASHINGTON–Barack Obama may have a handle on the younger demographic, but apparently his wife still has some work to do.
According to an AP-Yahoo News opinion poll released this week, 34 percent of young adults ages 18 to 34 have an unfavorable impression of Michelle Obama. This compares with 27 percent of young people who view her favorably and 39 percent who said they aren’t informed enough about her to comment either way.
Just 18 percent of young people polled view Cindy McCain unfavorably, a slightly lower figure than the 22 percent who said they have a positive impression of her. But Cindy McCain remains more of a mystery to most young voters—59 percent of 18-to-34-year-olds said they don’t know enough about her to form an impression.
Why is Michelle Obama so polarizing, and why is Cindy McCain so unfamiliar?
Democrats Complain Of Disclosure Double Standard
Democrats are complaining of a double standard in that billionaire Teresa “ketchup” Heinz had to disclose her finances during her husband John Kerry’s 2004 Democratic presidential bid, while the wife of 2008 Republican nominee, John McCain, has refused to.
Well, fair is fair. Do to one what you do to all (and vice versa).
John McCain and wife Cindy
John Kerry’s wife was said to be worth $750 million dollars with some of her funds helping him in his campaign for the presidency. Fast forward four years and the same is being said about John McCain.
John Kerry and wife Teresa
Wife of Republican presidential nominee, John McCain, stated today that she believes the wives and families of candidates should be off limits. Yea, like that’s gonna happen.
Considering whoever wins the race for the White House, will be residents at said casa and represent the nation to the world, you can be sure each person in said family will be thoroughly investigated and written about by the press. That’s just how it’s always worked.

You asking the press to back off is like asking Bill Clinton not to go to Hooters. That’s just testing willpower to the max.
George Bush kissing Cindy McCain as John McCain makes faces (LOL)
Cindy McCain: Families of candidates not fair game
(CNN) — Cindy McCain, wife of Sen. John McCain, said Thursday that the spouses of the presidential candidates should be allowed to have some privacy.
“I do not think that spouses and family members … are fair game,” she told CNN’s John King. “There has to be some decorum left in politics and in American journalism as well. Our husbands are the candidates,” she said.
Cindy McCain Slams Michelle Obama
And Michelle Obama Gets A Makeover
Michelle, wife of Democratic nominee Barack Obama, has gotten “a subtle makeover” according to several press outlets. She has been wearing softer, less corporate looks and new make up as well. Still, they act like she was wearing man-suits like Hillary and rocking an afro mullet (whereas Hillary has a straight up mullet).
As I wrote last month, Mrs. Obama and Mrs. McCain wore several flattering looks while out campaigning. There was nothing wrong with their attire. Now that the pleasant stuff is out of the way…
Cindy McCain, wife of Republican nominee, John McCain, slammed Michelle Obama today over comments she made a few months ago about America. Michelle previously stated that during her husband’s campaign was, “The first time I felt proud of my country.”
“I don’t know why she said what she said,” Mrs. McCain explains in an interview with ABC News’ Kate Snow airing on “Good Morning America” Thursday. “Everyone has their own experience. I don’t know why she said what she said, all I know is that I have always been proud of my country.”
Um, isn’t Michelle from Chicago. Oh, I’m having a vision. I see a black woman taking off her earrings and chasing down a blonde woman that made a comment on ABC. I see ABC’s Kate Snow backing up and saying, “This has nothing to do with me.”
(I’m just kidding).
Disfigured In An Accident Then Divorced By Returning P.O.W. McCain
Carol McCain (John’s ex-wife)
Yesterday, the Daily Mail in London did a very unflattering piece on John McCain and his treatment of his ex-wife, Carol, who the paper says he abandoned after she became physically disabled and disfigured in an accident.
Carol and returning P.O.W. John McCain in 1973
I’d alluded to scandals in Cindy McCain’s past in my previous article The Candidates’ Wives. Well, this was one of them. She was said to have helped him get a quick, but controversial divorce from his wife.
John McCain and his current wife Cindy
This story cannot be called a rumor, as there is too much evidence to support it (marriage, divorce, tax and medical records). However, Mr. McCain can give his position on what happened, as this subject will no doubt come up again.
The wife U.S. Republican John McCain callously left behind
Now that Hillary Clinton has at last formally withdrawn from the race for the White House, the eyes of America and the world will focus on Barack Obama and his Republican rival Senator John McCain…
She is McCain’s first wife, Carol, who was a famous beauty and a successful swimwear model when they married in 1965.
She was the woman McCain dreamed of during his long incarceration and torture in Vietnam’s infamous ‘Hanoi Hilton’ prison and the woman who faithfully stayed at home looking after the children and waiting anxiously for news.
But when McCain returned to America in 1973 to a fanfare of publicity and a handshake from Richard Nixon, he discovered his wife had been disfigured in a terrible car crash three years earlier. Her car had skidded on icy roads into a telegraph pole on Christmas Eve, 1969. Her pelvis and one arm were shattered by the impact and she suffered massive internal injuries…
She was confined to a wheelchair and was forced to use a catheter. Through sheer hard work, Carol learned to walk again. But when John McCain came home from Vietnam, she had gained a lot of weight and bore little resemblance to her old self.
McCain has acknowledged that he had girlfriends during this time, without going into details. Some friends blame his dissatisfaction with Carol, but others give some credence to her theory of a mid-life crisis…
‘My marriage ended because John McCain didn’t want to be 40, he wanted to be 25. You know that happens…it just does.’
In 1979 – while still married to Carol – he met Cindy at a cocktail party in Hawaii. Over the next six months he pursued her, flying around the country to see her. Then he began to push to end his marriage.
Carol and her children were devastated. ‘It was a complete surprise,’ says Nancy Reynolds, a former Reagan aide.
