Meghan McCain, the chatty daughter of 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain, says she joining up with "team Romney" for the 2012 campaign for the White House. At least, that's her leaning at this early stage.
McCain, 25, told NBC "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno she "is so sick and tired of this us-versus-them mentality" in politics. "I just want a candidate that's going to stop being so versus them. So right now I am team Romney."
In 2008, Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, was a rival who clearly got under the skin of Sen. McCain in the early stages of the Republican campaign when both competed for the nomination. Once McCain emerged as presumed GOP nominee, Romney got on board and received some consideration as a vice presidential running mate.
That honor went to then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. When Meghan McCain learned of the pick, she told Leno she panicked and cried on the way to the announcement, according to a CNN report. "I remember being on stage and distinctly thinking, 'God, let her not have any skeletons in the closet.' "
Meghan McCain was on the late-night show to promote her book, "Dirty Sexy Politics," a tome in which she describes Palin as a "time bomb."
Romney is raising money and has made no secret of his intention to run for president again in 2012. Of course, many pundits think Palin is on the same track.
That should be worth a few negative percent.
well heck her father was on Romney’s team in 2008.
This does nothing to enhance Romney’s credibility. It’s not like he had much to begin with.
As an endorsement, surely the kiss of death .... if anyone cared to pay attention.
And daddy has “Amnesty II: The Wrath of Juan” already in the can.
What if she eats one of Mitt’s children?
Whoa, whoa, whoa...wait a minute people.
You may all be reading this completely wrong.
Remember how McLame used the Huckster in VA to put Romney out of commission?
It could be that McLame, for some unknown reason, is up to those same old tricks but instead of using the squirrel-eater, he’s using his obnoxious, self-infatuated cow of a leftist daughter.
I'd describe Meghan McCain as a "loose cannon".
Wasn’t she on her dad’s team in 08?
She needs to go away. Belongs in the dim party. Pro abortion gay and anti economy.
Being endorsed by Meghan McCain is like being endorsed by Osama Bin laden. Romney’s campaign is over.
Of course the sow is, Flip reminds her of her daddy...you know, statist RINO.
The only team she knows is Team Meghan.
In her short life, she is 0 for 2 in voting for President.
Yep, she's a lefty alright...
Wannabe Dixie Chick. Only she can’t sing.
