While raising a wonderful family and doing good works around the world, McCain had a serious problem with painkillers and a Washington establishment that rejected her after the then congressman divorced a very popular wife.
All in all, though, Mrs. McCain came out as human being, which we all are.
The most telling truth of the profile is that her husband has not been around to raise their children with her. She moved back to Arizona and he stayed in Washington during the week. Even when he did make it home on the weekends, the senator was more involved with his political buddies and his political future.
So Cindy McCain has lived a very heroic life off the front lines, raising a family virtually by herself. Anniversary gifts for her had to be bought by friends. And painkillers became a source of comfort for a period of her existence and survival. That's not bad, that's human.
The senator who now wants to be our president is the one who came off looking bad in the profile. Any shame is on him.
The first vow you usually take before God as an adult in this world is to honor and care for your wife. While a considerable man of honor in war on the front lines, McCain has failed the calling in peace back home in his own household.
That is telling about the man, not his wife.
