Cindy McCain

I’m not sure how much emphasis to place on first families when it comes to deciding who to vote for.  But lots of other people apparently think it’s important so I wanted to ask if others are bothered by the way Cindy McCain presents herself on the campaign trail.  If Michelle Obama dressed the way Cindy McCain does, the press would be all over her and her husband.

I just saw a video clip of Cindy McCain on the campaign trail today (couldn’t find a still picture to post) and she looked a bit too “tartish” for my tastes.  She’ in her mid 50s, has nearly an unlimited amount of money to spend on clothes, etc., yet there’s something about her style that doesn’t sit right with me.

The photo below was taken today but she was wearing a different outfit on the national news tonight.  Anyone else?

    Since I’m guessing from a post I read above that you are of the female persuasion. I’m wondering if this is a female thing! Every time is see Mrs McCain in one of her frilly skirts and curly locks I wonder if she’s playing the role of “working” girl, going to a square dance or auditioning for a part in Heidi!

  2. Fo some people I think vanity is deeply ingrained and this is how I view Mrs. McCain. She probably won’t let her grandchildren call her “grandma” either, but rather something cute like “Noni”, etc.

    It must be difficult maintaining that image. And never doubt her husband plays a part in this, too. Maybe he can star in some Viagra commercials when he loses the election in November.
