If you are like me, you probably think that Cindy McCain is a wealthy attractive older woman that you have nothing in common with. In describing her personality I wouldn’t use the word warm.
So last night I was flipping through the channels on the TV and stumbled on the show E:60 on ESPN. It’s a documentary type show and they had a segment on Cindy McCain. It was refreshing to see a different side of her life that I don’t think most people have seen before.
Cindy McCain is a car nut, and has a need for speed.
The story talks about her attraction to auto racing, and her love of “drifting,” a driving style developed in Japan a number of years ago. It is a passion she shares with one of her sons, and it was his gift of a driving school that she says saved her life after a serious stroke a few years ago.
The below clip runs about 9 mins, but it’s worth your time.
Consider this, Cindy McCain would be the only first lady trained in executive protection driving skills. How cool is that? I kind of want to see her race First Dude Todd Palin, another racer.
