(CNN) – Cindy McCain on Tuesday ruled out the possibility of serving in her husband’s possible presidential administration.

Mrs. McCain, the wife of presumptive Republican nominee John McCain, told NY1 that while she would want be an “advocate” for issues like education as first lady, she has no plans to serve in an official post.

“I do not ever envision myself as being involved in the McCain administration, as it has been put, at all,” she said. “But my husband and I do talk and I want to be party to listening to what his ideas are too.”

She also said that her role as first lady would not change from her role today, making note of her work for international charities.

    Don't worry Cindy, you won't have to take up any cause. You won't be first lady.

    Your a traitor to the Republican caus McCain you spend more time pandering to the Clintons than to the conservatives. The South Carolinians were right about you!

    She'll be far too busy cashing those inheritance checks to work.
    Does this qualify as news?

    Good Cindy. Cuz there won't be a John McCain presidency anyway.

    McSame better get ready to be routed and ambushed by the Dems with Barack at the helm. This is the end of the Republicans, thanks to Bush.

    I really wish her the best, but doubt that she has anything to worry about. There is a new world coming and we look forward to the changes an Obama administration will bring.

    Some Americans are so darn stupid it's a shame. The McCain’s are not for the average American working family. They are big business owners and do not have the small Americans people interest at heart. As I read some of these comments it just makes me sick to the stomach and the only conclusion that I can draw is racial hatred and that’s a shame because we all suffer with this kind of attitudes.

    Though I don't think he's going to get elected anyway... if he does.... her job should just be to keep John satisfied... so he doesn't 'push the button' out of frustration :)

    “I do not ever envision myself as being involved in the McCain administration, as it has been put, at all,”

    Sounds like she doesn't think much of his potential administration, either.

    I find it odd that people are referring to Obama as an elitist when this woman clearly is. Laura Bush (former teacher) did NOTHING to improve education in this country in the past 7.5 years, I doubt Cindy McCain will be different. No Child Left Behind, indeed.

    Cindy, still waiting on those '07 taxes. Any plans to release them?

    If McCain wins, Bush will still be President. What a horrible thought. George Bush might as well stay put. Why even move out?

  22. Tell John that it is time for Cindy to tell all!

    Folks,

    Please don't let the McCains fool you. Cindy has refused to post her Tax Returns. NO! NO!. She only posted what she thought was safe, Do you folks realize just how much is buried in Cindy's Tax Returns? Cindy is just giving you snippets of a huge aristocracy. Believe you me the McCains are trying to pull the wool over your eyes!
