    As Arizonans prepare for their final salute to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Republicans and political pundits in the state privately tell Newsmax they expect the appointment of his wife, Cindy, to succeed him in the Senate.

    But, it wouldn't be all the unusual. And, from what I've read, she's actually far more conservative than he is.

    47 women have been elected or appointed to fill congressional vacancies created by the deaths of their husbands, 8 to the U.S. Senate and 39 to the U. S. House of Representatives.

    That seems totally bogus to me. Senate seats are extremely powerful positions. Political beliefs aside, IMO no spouse should be appointed as a Senator.

    NO on every level possible. Hopefully the Arizona citizenry would run her out of office the first time she came up for re-election

    It's just fucking wrong. Unlike dems, having a vagina does not automatically qualify anyone for political office. I don't believe that she's "more Conservative " than her quisling husband. On that broken scale, even Jake Starkey is slightly more Conservative than Juan McCain. Just make a real appointment
