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.

There was no way in hell I was going to vote for McCain. Then he picked Palin -- so, because of that, I went to the polls in Nov 2008 and I voted for McCain/Palin.

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.

Talk about complete projection! Palin actually EARNED her rise by doing things. Meghan had her's handed to her because of who daddy is.

Palin brought stress, drama, panic — and voters — to the McCain campaign.

Same here. Since then, I've decided that for me, it's error to vote based on the #2 slot on the ticket.

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.
