Campaigning can be hazardous for the spouses too. Just ask Cindy McCain who continues to accompany her husband as he tours the battleground states with her right arm coddled in a soft cast and black cloth sling. She didn't trip, she didn't bang it. Someone just shook her hand a bit too hard.

"I'm absolutely fine," was the word from Mrs McCain in Michigan on Wednesday, her husband, all smiles, by her side. His sound advice to her: she would "not have to shake so many hands" while joining him on the stump.

The senator's wife suffered the injury at a golf club fundraising event. The McCain team explained she has had wrist trouble before, which was aggravated by "enthusiastic supporters". After an X-ray Mrs McCain was back on the trail.
