    She visited Vanderbilt Children's Hospital and shared love and compassion for all those sick kids. That's something one would expect from a First Lady, a lady of class, something like Princess Diana used to do and our First Ladies of this great nation have done.

    I have no idea what Michelle Obama did while in Nashville yesterday, but apparently it wasn't on the same caliber to be locally newsworthy.

    Just wanted people to know. With all the hubbub, Nashville had the world's focus last night and our local media was very happy and excited.

    Cindy McCain will make a wonderful first lady. She doesn't need to "prove" anything to anybody and has no axes to grind and can use her position for a great deal of influence and good. :)

    so the purpose of this post is to put down michelle obama?

    Man......nothing drives people away from the republican party more than stuff like this.

    ....although I'm not even voting for Obama...it still drives me crazy.

    ummm...because if you read MORE THAN the title and first line it says this:

    "I have no idea what Michelle Obama did while in Nashville yesterday, but apparently it wasn't on the same caliber to be locally newsworthy."

    Sorry, dan e, but that's the way it is, a reality check. If Michelle Obama did something humanitarian yesterday, please let us know. There is more at stake than just the candidate who wins, their wives will play a significant role in how this nation is perceived by other nations in the world. I mentioned Princess Diana and other Presidents' wives, too, but you didn't seem to take issue with that.

    it is apparent according to the title and first line mischelle obama is not the topic of this thread, but your making her the topic.
    Oh and by the way, I did read the whole thing.

    I have a question. In general, what do either of the wives do that is charitable, or humanitarian?
    And I do agree with you. We've always seen presidents wives who were involved with people and issues. So I wondered what types of things these two might be involved with if their husbands wins.

    Looks to me like Cindy is the wife of a smart politician. These photo ops go down well when the issues fail.

    Roger, to call it a photo-op is ignoring her track record. Now, if she'd never done this, fair enough. It still may be a touch of PR, but it's not like she doesn't do this practically everywhere she goes, and has done this for decades.

    Exactly. Cindy McCain sits on the board of several charities, including Operation Smile, CARE, and the HALO Trust which clears landmines in war-torn areas and has for decades like you said, very heavily involved with children in her charity work. For someone to call it a photo op shows they are uninformed.

    In a non election year the press doesn't care. that wouldn't be either of the McCain's faults.

    It doesn't matter and that's not the point of this thread. Her background in charities proves she will be an asset to this country as she steps into the WH as First Lady.

    I admire anyone;s work with children's charities, but in an election year, on the very day there is a presidential debate - this is politics.

    But four weeks before an election every step they take is politics.

    You assumption based on suspicion and nothing more. She has a solid life time track record of this kind of work. There is no need to question her motives just because of timing and personal prejudices.

    In actuality all political discussion is based on bias and personal prejudices, is it not?

    You are correct - I do look at all politicians with suspicion, especially during an election year.
