Not to dismiss Linda, though, as she was always my favorite McCartney, but you really can't even compare them on every level like some try. She was a pretty conventional/standard choice compared to what Yoko was and that is what caused all the uproar with the people. They couldn't get with that kind of 'different' and some of them STILL can't.
