And you base this opinion on what exactly? Or should we just take your word for it?

At this point, one would generally expand on the qualities of both people and show a comparison of those qualities, highlighting those that they feel make one of them better than the other. Trolls will just post their opinion and run away.

What does that have to do with whether or not Cindy McCain is qualified for the US Senate?

Why? Because she is good at selling beer?

Cindy is a very accomplished woman. So is her daughter. In no small part because of their own talents.

https://www.britannica.com/biography/Cindy-McCain

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meghan_McCain

McCain was good at dumping his first wife and marrying money. That didn't make him Senatorial material. But it likely helped him fund his attempts at getting elected.

None of which should have anything to do with the Governor Ducy's choice.

People act like they never heard of it so I'm here to enlighten.

From the Cindy Lou Hensley Wiki page

<Hensley enrolled at the University of Southern California. She joined Kappa Alpha Theta sorority as a freshman, and had many leadership roles in the house during her four years there.>

<Hensley graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in education in 1976.She continued on at USC, and received a Master of Arts in special education in 1978. There she participated in a movement therapy pilot program that laid the way for a standard treatment for children with severe disabilities; she published the work Movement Therapy: A Possible Approach in 1978.>

<Declining a role in the family business, she worked for a year as a special education teacher dealing with children with Down syndrome and other disabilities at Agua Fria High School in Avondale, Arizona.>

<Upon her father's death in 2000, she inherited majority control and became chair of Hensley & Co., one of the largest Anheuser-Busch beer distributors in the United States. She participated in both of her husband's presidential campaigns and, in 2008, drew both positive and negative scrutiny for her appearance, demeanor, wealth, spending habits, and financial obligations.She continues to be an active philanthropist and serves on the boards of Operation Smile, Eastern Congo Initiative, CARE and HALO Trust, frequently making overseas trips in conjunction with their activities. During the 2010s she has become prominent in the fight against human trafficking.>


Now its yer turn to post whatís against her as the replacement for her husbandís Senate seat. Bear in mind that she as of yet hasnít filed for bankruptcy six times as of yet, like president bone spur has; bankruptcy seems to be the gold standard for running for president now in the republican party.

All you did was post some details from her Wiki page. You didn't elaborate on any of the qualifications as to how they would make her more or less qualified for a seat in the Senate or even point to those qualifications. I can Google her Wiki page but I can't Google what it is about her qualifications that tells you that she is more qualified that Trump and why.

I would way nice try, but it really wasn't.

I've heard of it; I just don't agree that being the spouse or somehow related to a Senator, somehow makes you qualified for the job. If my doctor suddenly fell ill and could not see me, I would not expect his wife to jump in and take over for him.
