(NAM Executive Vice President Jay Timmons is blogging from the Republican National Convention this week in St. Paul, Minn., following up on his reports from the Democratic Convention last week in Denver.)
Cindy McCain won’t be on the ballot, but Americans have a special place in their hearts for the spouses of our Presidents.
Last week, we saw the genuine compassionate spirit and focused determination of Michelle Obama. Her address electrified the attendees at the Democratic convention.
This week, we witnessed the grace and playful wit of Mrs. McCain. An introductory video outlined her charitable endeavors and gave viewers a glimpse of her generous, nurturing heart.
She spoke with passion about her husband’s commitment to country and sterling military service.
Her pride in Senator McCain and her family was most evident, as was her passion for serving others
Like many who give of themselves selflessly, Cindy McCain has not spoken of her work in any great detail in the past. But her efforts to help the underprivileged around the world through “Operation Smile” and other charitable endeavors give America a glimpse of a wonderful servant who is the Republican presidential nominee’s First Lady.
If she becomes America’s First Lady, she will clearly be prepared to help lift the lives and spirits of those she touches.
