Exclusive: Meghan McCain Writes that Palin Brought 'Drama, Stress... Panic' to Campaign
Sen. John McCain's Daughter: Sarah Palin's Rise Was 'Too Fast,' 'Too Easy'
Aug. 31, 2010
For the first time since the end of her father's 2008 presidential bid, Sen. John McCain's daughter Meghan McCain spoke out about Sarah Palin, writing in a new book that Palin brought "drama, stress, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty" to the losing campaign.
Though she writes that during the campaign she wondered if the loss "was Sarah Palin's fault," McCain told "Good Morning America" today in an exclusive interview that Palin was not the reason the campaign failed.
"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," McCain told "GMA's" George Stephanopoulos. "She brought so much momentum and enthusiasm to the campaign."

Before Palin came on board, McCain said she knew drama was brewing.
"I had learned a few things on the campaign already, and knew that change always brought complications and chaos and sometimes a little entertainment. Drama was inevitable on a campaign and created almost out of thin air. Tempers were always flying, and feelings were always being hurt. There was no question that a running mate would add to the confusion and upset. There would be less time for fun," she writes. "But I couldn't have predicted just how serious it was going to get."
McCain admitted that during the campaign she stumbled when asked whether she had doubts about Palin's presence on the ticket and in the book said that Joe Lieberman was her favorite pick.

Shut up and go away Meghan, no one care what you think.
Enough with these phony republicans.
seems to me her blog from during the campaign said otherwise...
Oh Meghan, grow up!
I suspect I am not alone.
And Meghan brings her teen-mentality piercing insights and her nice breasts. I wish she would leave her insights at home.
What a complete twit.
Talk about complete projection! Palin actually EARNED her rise by doing things. Meghan had her's handed to her because of who daddy is.
Why does this elitist twit think anyone cares what she thinks?
You’re not alone.
What does Meagan McCain know about being too easy?
This gal is obviously clueless.
Palin brought stress, drama, panic — and voters — to the McCain campaign.
Gee, thanks for campaigning for my Dad, Sarah. Now, turn around, I need someplace to stick this knife.
Have a nice day!
Same here. Since then, I've decided that for me, it's error to vote based on the #2 slot on the ticket.
McCain losing bad... but he pick Palin, draws even....
TARP vote, McCain makes his move...goes to Washington to stop this monstrosity....
oh but wait he votes for it... defends it in the first debate with Obama.... loses by 6 points
Didn’t The Who have an album named after Megan?
This is nothing more than a blatant attempt to get the McCains and the Palins to hate each other, distrust each other and make enemies on both sides.
McCain and Palin should not fall for this crap.
