With two days of campaigning left before the US chooses a new president, let’s take a close look at their spouse. First, Cindy McCain. What strikes me the most in this woman, is that when she’s interviewed for the upcoming election, she doesn’t seem to have a firm opinion on things. Like if she doesn’t give a damn about what her husband might become (let’s pray not).
Maybe this is because McCain and she have a huge age difference. She’s 54, he’s 72. Recently, I read an article describing her life, and she appeared to act like a spoiled, daddy’s girl, teenager. I hope for her she knows what her husband does for a living, and that she doesn’t ask him for permission to go out or to buy another 8th house.
Personally, I don’t envy her at all. She met her husband while he was still married, and the first years she spent with him were particularly difficult because everybody judged her as a homewrecker. A little bit like the former Mrs Sarkozy, Cecilia Ciganer-Albeniz, went through when she left her then husband for the future-ex one. Then, she had a little problem with drug abuse.
On the other hand, Michelle Obama.
She has recently been elected one of the best-dressed celebrities by Vanity Fair, and given where she comes from, this is a true honor. She’s educated, intelligent, and seems like a strong and independent woman. When interviewed, she gives the right answers the right time, even though her words can be taken out of their context against her and Obama by the Republican party. Personally, I have a bit of an admiration for her.
So, which one would make the best First lady?
