Cindy McCain: Families of candidates not fair game

(CNN) - Cindy McCain, wife of John McCain, said Thursday the spouses of the presidential candidates should be allowed to have some privacy.

"I do not think that spouses and family members ... are fair game," she told CNN's John King.

"There has to be some decorum left in politics and in American journalism as well. Our husbands are the candidates," she said.

    Wow. The hypocracy is staggering...

    It' like she's using the old "no-touch-back" rule of tag. She whacks Michelle over the "proud" comment again, then says that they're off-limits.

    She's just as senile as her husband. The botox just hides hers better.

    Michelle looked gorgeous yesterday on the "View". She could be a model. I wil be so proud to have her as my first lady, and I can't wait to vote for her husband.

    It just occured to Cindy that it might not be a good idea to slam Michelle with all the skeletons she has in her own closet.
