Cindy McCain’s half-sister is voting for Barack Obama

“I wouldn’t vote for John McCain if he was a Democrat.”

“I’m not voting for McCain,” Kathleen Hensley Portalski tells Us Magazine. “I have a different political standpoint.

“I’m voting for Obama,” the Phoenix resident says. “I think his proposals to improve the country are more positive and I’m not a big war believer.”

National Public Radio (NPR) earlier interviewed Cindy on her philanthropic endeavors. The program later aired the response from Kathleen and her son Nicholas, on their back-of-the-hand treatment, as Cindy declares herself to be an only child. Prior to their marriage to each other, Jim Hensley and Cindy’s mother, Marguerite, each had a child from their pervious marriages.

Portalski’s son, a 45-year-old aerospace machinist, is also backing Obama.

“I wouldn’t vote for John McCain if he was a Democrat,” he tells the magazine. “I would not vote at all before I’d vote for him.

“I question whether Cindy is someone I’d want to see in the White House as first lady,” he added.

    Sad family saga. Money is too often the straw that breaks a family’s back. Jim Hensley didn’t do his daughters any favors when he drove a megabucks spike between them.

    I imagine they aren’t too close.

    The whole bloomin’ family are Democrats!
