Dissent within the Political Family

Senator John McCain's wife, Cindy McCain, came out against "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" this week. Then she changed her mind. I wonder why? Did her husband, who opposes the attempts to limit the idiotic ban on gays serving openly in the military tell her he cannot accept public dissent within the family? and if so why not? Why can't wives (or any spouse for that matter) distance themselves from their political spouse's positions every now and then?

Couldn't the senator, when pressed on the matter, say that everyone, his wife included, can have a disagreement every now and then?
