Slideshow: All The Presidential Candidates’ Accessories

Because Barack Obama and John McCain are stuck in suits most of the time, the only chance we have to see their style is in the accessories. Now, we think some of the lapel pins that the candidates and their wives have been wearing are a little much — we’re in a recession, people, you shouldn’t be wearing so many diamonds, even if they are fake! Michelle Obama has completely nailed her accessories. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, has gone overboard. Keep reading »

    Having A Step Family Isn’t Easy

    Cindy McCain refers to herself as an “only child” when she speaks about her childhood, despite the fact that she has two half-sisters. “It’s terribly painful,” said Kathleen Hensley Portalski, a sister, to the Washington Post. “It’s as if she is the ‘real’ daughter. I am also a real daughter.” Both Portalski and McCain are the children of Jim Hensley. Portalski is Henley’s daughter from his first marriage in the 1930s to Mary Jeanne Parks. He divorced Parks and married Marguerite “Smitty” Johnson in 1945. And McCain was born nine years later. McCain’s mother also had a daughter, Dixie Burd, from a previous relationship.

    Portalski told the Post that she remained quiet for decades while her father lavished attention on his second family. But McCain’s repeated references to being her father’s only child finally became unbearable in the past few months. “I was his family too,” she said. And I know from personal experience exactly how she feels. Keep reading »

    John McCain And Nancy Reagan Drifted Apart After The Presidential Candidate’s Divorce

    When Nancy Reagan endorsed presidential candidate John McCain back in March, all she said was, “Ronnie [Ronald Reagan] and I always waited until everything was decided, and then we endorsed. Well, obviously this is the nominee of the party.” And that was it. Today, the LA Times writes that this mild endorsement might be the result of John McCain’s divorce from first wife Carol in 1980. Apparently, the Reagans were very fond of Carol, and even high-powered splits result in a division of friends. McCain may or may not have started dating Cindy before he and Carol were separated (there seems to be some discrepancies with the dates), and his marriage to Cindy within weeks of his divorce (they applied for a marriage license before McCain’s divorce had gone through) upset many Republicans.
