Cindy and Candy on the McCain Plane
By Matthew Mosk
ABOARD STRAIGHT TALK AIR -- Calling it a "fall surprise," Cindy McCain made a rare (some say first-ever) visit to the press section of Sen. John McCain's plane this morning.
She carried with her a plastic Jack-O-Lantern filled with candy, which she and Sen. Lindsey Graham passed out to a somewhat stunned plane-load of reporters.
The wife of the Republican nominee has been meticulous in her avoidance of the press on the trail, trying to preserve some semblance of privacy. In recent days, she has been the subject of critical reports about her efforts to engineer cell phone service at her secluded Arizona ranch.
But this morning she was all smiles, wishing the press an early Halloween greeting, and passing out peace offerings of Kit Kat bars and Baby Ruths. She shared polite handshakes and smiles for three or four minutes, and then headed back up the aisle.
