Election Moms: Cindy McCain
# 1 of 5: Being married to a politician
Cindy McCain, wife of Republican Presidential nominee John McCain, is the mother of four children: Meghan, 24, Jack, 22, Jimmy, 20, and Bridget, 17. "I always told the kids: 'Daddy's on a mission, serving his country. We have to be supportive.'" Cindy says. "And he's never been neglectful of our family. Naturally, there were times I wish, like every wife, he'd been home more ... that he'd sit down, hold my hand, say, 'I'm sorry, honey,' but I respect his dedication. John's a real patriot."
