John McCain, a senior member of the Senate committee that oversees the telecom industry, now has cellphone coverage at the family's ranch near Sedona, after a request from his wife, Cindy, early in 2007, the Washington Post reported. Verizon Wireless and AT&T provide the coverage at the ranch, which is in a remote canyon where reception is difficult. McCain is a senior member and former chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, which oversees the Federal Communications Commission and the telecommunications industry.

Media and their ethical norms have changed so much in recent times that no one seemed to miss a beat when ABC announced that it had invited would-be First Lady Ann Romney to sit in next week as a guest host on what ostensibly remains a news program - the network's “Good Morning America.” A time existed not that long ago when news outlets kept an arm's length from the subjects they would cover. But both “GMA” and Romney have bigger priorities today - with the morning show in a daily race to unseat NBC's “Today” as the a.m. ratings leader and Romney pushing hard to help her husband, Mitt, win the White House.

Cindy McCain's debts with the county tax collector appear to be settled. Officials said Monday a trust controlled by the multimillionaire wife of Republican presidential hopeful John McCain had initiated payment on $1,743 owed in property taxes on a condominium in the tony La Jolla Shores area. The payment, due in April, was scheduled to be in default today. "You can reasonably assume that it is paid," San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister said Monday.

It wasn't my intention, but I played a role in shutting down John McCain's Straight Talk Express. It happened on a warm July afternoon as McCain traveled from a West Virginia airport to a rally in Ohio. I had headed to the back of his bus with a small group of reporters, where as always McCain warmly motioned for us to squeeze in beside him on the couch.

The rigors of campaigning caught up with Cindy McCain on Wednesday. She suffered a minor wrist sprain when an "enthusiastic supporter" shook her hand at a fundraiser. Later in the afternoon, she stood beside her husband, GOP presidential hopeful John McCain, wearing a soft cast on her right arm supported by a black fabric sling that sported a sparkly brooch. "I'm absolutely fine," she said. John McCain joked that his wife now would "not have to shake so many hands" while on the stump.

Sen. John McCain unexpectedly released part of his wife's 2006 tax return on Friday, showing that she reported income of $6.1 million through a combination of salary, dividends, capital gains and payments from trusts. Cindy McCain, who controls one of the nation's largest beer wholesalers, has steadfastly refused to discuss her finances, saying she wants to protect her children's privacy. But late Friday, McCain's campaign office posted her two-page IRS Form 1040 on the Internet.

An icy wind whips by as Cindy McCain tramps across hillsides still slick from snow on the Albanian border, wearing well-worn hiking boots and carrying her Prada purse. She's looking out at minefields and visiting schools where children must thread their way around leftover munitions. One headmaster told her he had uncovered a cluster bomb when he went out to plant a tree.

Republicans convened their national convention Monday in a session truncated by a hurricane and roiled by vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's revelation that her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant. John McCain's campaign sought to keep the focus on the emergency response to Hurricane Gustav, limiting partisan functions and parties to underscore that Republicans would not repeat 2005's much-criticized response to Hurricane Katrina. Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan opened the convention by urging delegates to take out their cellphones, then giving them a number to call to donate to the Gulf Coast relief effort.

The McCain household wasn't immune from the weakening economy, according to tax returns released Friday: Cindy McCain's income fell by nearly a third last year. But the family's considerable investments, estimated at more than $100 million, and a steady flow of salary, dividends, capital gains and interest are probably preventing any economic pain at home. In 2007, Cindy McCain reported income of $4.2 million and ended the year with the federal government owing her almost $1 million.

They are two nice ladies from the Southwest, daughters of wealth and privilege, mothers who are panther-like in their protection of hearth and home. Both left teaching careers to concentrate full time on raising children. Both are grateful that the circumstances of their marriages to successful men permitted them to do so. Both are avid volunteers. Both are handsome women, with pastel eyes that might have wandered out of a Monet painting.

John McCain and Sarah Palin began their post-convention tour of battleground states Friday in the small Wisconsin town of Cedarburg. But although Palin's biggest task in the coming months will be trying win over the Lower 48, she's not about to abandon her Alaska roots. How can we tell? Follow the tracks. Moosetracks, that is. That's the ice cream flavor she chose when she, McCain and Cindy McCain made a stop at a Cedarburg sweets shop before their campaign appearance. The new vice presidential nominee ordered a large scoop of moosetracks -- vanilla ice cream with peanut butter cups and fudge -- served in a waffle cone.

There has been much talk about the new energy the naming of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin brought to the Republican National Convention. So why did the final night play so flat? Maybe it was a case of convention fatigue, or the vacuum left by the windstorm that surrounded Palin. But none of the speakers, including McCain, seemed to catch fire Thursday night. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge and Cindy McCain all gave perfectly fine speeches of praise, but they were treading water before the main event.

The topic was Sen. John McCain's vice presidential pick, and talk show host Laura Ingraham was on a roll. Accepting an award from the Republican National Coalition for Life on behalf of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was under wraps working on her convention speech, Ingraham chastised anyone who would suggest that Palin is not up to the job. As a pro-life working mother of five, including a special needs infant and a pregnant 17-year-old, Ingraham...

Cindy McCain, wife of Republican Sen. John McCain, was hospitalized in stable condition after suffering a small stroke. McCain, who left a book tour stop in New York City to be with his wife, said she would not require surgery or a lengthy hospital stay. Cindy McCain, 49, had minor bleeding in her brain, and her speech was mildly affected, said Robert Spetzler, medical director of the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix.

Sen. John McCain's wife was released from the hospital four days after she suffered what was described as a minor stroke. "I am happy to be going," Cindy McCain said as her husband, an Arizona Republican, pushed her wheelchair to their car. McCain, 49, suffered the stroke Monday, possibly because of a spike in her blood pressure, doctors said.

"NOT ONLY do I eat, I also am a Democrat," wrote Frank Sinatra in an intro to 1960's "Many Happy Returns: The Democrats' Cook Book, or How to Cook a G.O.P. Goose" (the sales of which helped buy TV air time for candidates). "Not only should every Democrat own a copy of this book, but he should load up all his or her friends, and even smuggle some copies into Pasadena and other points where the enemy is strong and square." "Many Happy Returns" is one of the more entertaining of a long string of little-noticed ephemera of political campaigns -- the partisan cookbook, written by politicos and their supporters (wives, celebrities, members of the Glendale Republican Womens Study Club)
OPINION

Re "McCain blunder leaves him looking for political shelter," Aug. 22 Wouldn't you know that Barack Obama is trying to exploit the fact that John McCain and his wife own seven homes? For Obama's information, the father of our country, George Washington -- in large part through his marriage to Martha Custis, a wealthy heiress like Cindy McCain -- owned many thousands of acres of land and may have been the richest man ever to become president. Washington's wealth never prevented him from doing a good job as a leader of the American Revolution or president of the United States.
