Meghan McCain Opens up About Campaign, Palins

Tuesday, 31 Aug 2010 07:26 PM


John McCain's daughter says in a new book that Sarah Palin brought drama, stress and uncertainty to her father's failed bid for the presidency in 2008.

But Meghan McCain doesn't blame the vice presidential nominee for the loss.

"Dirty Sexy Politics" was released Tuesday. In the book, McCain portrays conflicted feelings about her father's surprise choice for a running mate. She reveals she called Palin "the Time Bomb" who could explode at any moment.

But she also describes the Palins as "nice and down-to-Earth," and says she was impressed with Palin's ability to captivate and inspire women.

McCain writes that her father ultimately lost because "Obama was unbeatable."

She also urges the Republican Party to be more inclusive.
