Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin isn't to blame for the GOP's loss in the 2008 presidential election, Meghan McCain, daughter of 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain, says.
McCain told talk show host Larry King in an interview for his PoltiKING show that not even the Son of God could have saved her dad's campaign.
'I think my father could have had Jesus Christ as his running mate and it wouldn't have mattered in '07. I truly believe that,' she said.
McCain wrote in her 2010 book Dirty Sexy Politics that Palin added 'drama, stress, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty' to her father's presidential campaign' and that after it was all said and done ' she wondered 'if it was Sarah Palin's fault' that her dad, Arizona Senator John McCain, lost the general election to now-President Barack Obama.
In an interview about her book in August of 2010, McCain argued that 'I do clearly state at the end that we did not lose because of her, and I'm speaking out now because I do have conflicting feelings about her.'
'She brought so much momentum and enthusiasm to the campaign,' McCain told Good Morning America host George Stephanopolous.
Now, five and a half years later, McCain seems to have gained perspective on her dad's failed bid for the presidency.
Not only does she now claim Palin is not at fault for her father's defeat, she claims Palin was treated unfairly by the media....

Of course he ran in ‘08, not in ‘07 but we’ll forgive her for being a year off.
I almost feel sorry for John.
If Jesus had been his running mate, he would have lost because that would have fired up the liberal Democrat base to vote against that GOP ticket......
What kind of an idiot has Jesus playing second fiddle to a psychotic megalomaniac?
Exactly that’s how bad McCain is...not even Jesus could save him.
Jesus would not have run with a man like McCain. Not in a million years.
First thing I’ve agreed with her on.
Yup, Megham, that’s just how big of a loser he is.
She's not all bad.
Oh, a very large idiot!
Holy crap, is she finally coming to her senses?
She does have a point. Now in '08...
I think shes pretty cute..
She has a pretty face.
He lost because he wasn’t willing to confront Obama on his failings and where he would fail.
It was his unwillingness to really fight that cost him the Presidency.
Conclusive proof that the problem in 2008 was not the conservative running mate, but the GOP-E hack at the top of the ticket. Thanks, Meghan.
