The best thing about Cindy is that she allows her husband to be the nominee. She appears very comfortable supporting her husband from the sidelines. She does not come on stage and prance about like she's 14, bump fists, and get a pat on the butt from her husband before he speaks.

It really goes to show what "type" of people the Obamas are targeting, and the type the McCains are targeting. Actions speak louder than words, but sometimes words speak pretty loud all by themselves ("This is the first time I've been proud of my country..." Michelle Obama, 2008).
