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.

Any drama that happened, happened because the McCain campaign lent no support to Palin to assist in defending against unfounded attacks.
It's almost as if Palin was used as a lightning rod to prevent your daddy from being struck.
Another backstabber from the Romney-McCain-Cornyn
liberal shapeshifting wing of the GOP.
I'm another one of those guys.
Damn shame. I was hoping we could be new best friends.

Palin brought ‘Sexy, Leg Tingleness....Smokin’ Hotness’ to the Campaign.
LOL Todd is a lucky man!
Okay sorry someone had to say it
And McCain is to blame for this. She is spouting off this way because he hasn’t told her to put a sock in it. This is actually John McCain, stabbing a partner in the back.
Go away John. Please, Just go away and take yous single brain cell dauthter with you.
Now that her father won the GOP nomination... here it comes.
These people are so predictable.
give us a kiss...
I was so looking forward to “McCain” eventually fading into the political sunset...and then his young blabbermouth daughter shows up. She’s gonna be the “OMG” website Republican for the next 40 years. Lord help us if this one breeds. I have a pistol pointed to my temple...
McCain would have gotten exactly 17 votes if it wasn’t for Palin...
In fact, without Palin on the ticket, McCain would have been mondaled.
This will continue for the next 2 years (the bashing).
PDS runs rampant (Palin-Derangement-Syndrome), as did BDS (Bush-Derangement-Syndrome).
Well well. Who didn’t see this coming?
nope, you aren’t alone!
Meghan is bringing drama to the table.
From her interview with George Stephanopolis:
She (Palin) was not just an overnight success or even a political Cinderella story. She was a sudden, freakishly huge, full-fledged phenomenon. It seemed too much. And it seemed too easy, McCain writes.
Its no secret that Im so unlike her, she told Good Morning America.
