Maybe she can explain Sunni vs. Shi'a to John McCain. Remember Vicki Iseman, the lobbyist who
allegedly had an affair with McCain while he was married to Cindy "Sugar Mom" McCain?

What a sexist and inflammatory insinuation! It turns out that her rapid rise within the ranks of lobbyists is entirely justified by the richness of her background and experience. After all, wouldn't the senior partner of any top lobbying firm have started out as a receptionist with a degree in elementary education?
Ms. Iseman graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1990 with a degree in elementary education and ventured to Washington, where she was hired as a receptionist for Alcalde & Fay, a high-powered, high-profile lobbying firm based in Arlington, Va. She rose through the ranks to become a senior partner who, in 10-plus years, acquired a list of more than 30 clients including Carnival Cruise Lines, Paxson Communications, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Telemundo Network, and the cities of Miami and Palm Springs, Calif. The bulk of her work involved telecommunications.
Hopefully all that training in elementary education won't go to waste as she explains the economy, foreign policy, and the gas tax to McMaverick.
