As this turbulent election continues to hover just over the horizon, Americans are filled with anxiety. There are other issues contributing to this, of course, but that doesn’t diminish the fact that many feel as thought it will all come to a head in November.
It’s enough to push us ever further into our political corners, and perhaps even into new and polar positions.
This is true for Cindy McCain, widow of former Congressman John McCain, who has reached across the aisle in recent weeks to endorse Joe Biden for President. Now, McCain is taking another step even further into Biden’s camp, assuming a position within his transition team.
Cindy McCain, the widow of Republican Sen. John McCain, will advise Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential transition team as it prepares for him to take office if he wins in November, the team announced Monday.
McCain is the second Republican on the 16-member transition advisory board, joining Bob McDonald, the former Procter & Gamble Co. chief executive who headed the Department of Veterans Affairs under President Barack Obama.
Biden has reached out extensively to Republicans disaffected with President Donald Trump. McCain, whose husband was the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, last week endorsed Biden and urged other conservative women to follow suit, saying, “Biden is by far the best candidate in the race.”
Given all of the mainstream media’s speculation regarding the outcome of the 2020 election, the widow McCain could truly have her work cut out for her.
