The wife U.S. Republican John McCain callously left behind
Advertisements [?]
Moral fiber my ass - the guy is a creep

McCain likes to illustrate his moral fibre by referring to his five years as a prisoner-of-war in Vietnam. And to demonstrate his commitment to family values, the 71-year-old former US Navy pilot pays warm tribute to his beautiful blonde wife, Cindy, with whom he has four children.

But there is another Mrs McCain who casts a ghostly shadow over the Senators presidential campaign. She is seldom seen and rarely written about, despite being mother to McCains three eldest children.

And yet, had events turned out differently, it would be she, rather than Cindy, who would be vying to be First Lady. She is McCains first wife, Carol, who was a famous beauty and a successful swimwear model when they married in 1965.

She was the woman McCain dreamed of during his long incarceration and torture in Vietnams infamous Hanoi Hilton prison and the woman who faithfully stayed at home looking after the children and waiting anxiously for news.
