First Daughter to Be? The Meghan McCain You Don't Know

First Daughter to Be? The Meghan McCain You Don't Know


Despite the embarrassingly hideous and enormous pile of magazines next to my bed, I was able to unearth one cool piece among the mountain. Glamour caught up with Meghan McCain on the campaign trail this month and found out the "12 Things" we don't know about her. Here are my favorite quotes from the flaxen first daughter to be. (Alleged. Possible. Maybe. You know what I mean.)

  • She's real: "Politicians often teach their kids to control what you say and not to trust. My parents just taught me: Be who you are."
  • Some guys are blinded by her beauty and/or don't read the paper: "[Once, a guy said,] 'Baby, I could totally give you a tour of the Capitol.' In fairness, he didn't know who my dad was. I just said, 'Really?'"
  • She's a smashing big sis: "I'm a role model to my little sister [Bridget, who's 17]. The last [thing] I'd ever want her to think is that it's OK to be stupid and not involved. I want her [to know] that you can do it all — you can like fashion and clothes and movies but also be highly involved."

To see the number one thing that you might not know about Meghan McCain,

.

She has a particularly handsome brother. OK, OK, I'm sorry I made that one up. But it does relate nicely to this poignant quote:

  • The war is personal: "[When my brother Jimmy was deployed,] saying goodbye to him was like an out-of-body experience. It was all these kids — they looked like I could babysit them — with guns and bags...and everyone's crying. I just totally broke down, which I hadn't done up to that point. I was like, 'Just come back safe, come back, you're going to be fine.' And then at the last minute, I was like, He could die. It was this really intense experience. I don't think anyone knows the military like my dad, and that's what's made me put my heart into the campaign."

It's a nice blend of serious and fun — and really shows why she's been thriving on the trail.

wadewifey3 -- you desperately need to do some actual research on Cindy McCain. The woman is an amazing inspiration. Her kind heart definitely inspires me.

I don't like her, she reminds me of her father and even worse a little bit of Cindy.

Remember when there was a thread about Obama's vacation and GS asked 'why is this here'? That's how I feel about this one.

I don't mind the non-mean ones so much.

I still haven't received the comments from an hour and a half ago. Boo. Oh well. I lost track of this post anyway.

Sorry, I forgot about your distaste for emoticons.

It really would. I can take my lunch any time. :coffeecup:

Right. It would be easier if we could just have this conversation in a coffee shop, eh?

I didn't say you thought I was being condescending, here we go assuming again... (Just kidding.) My comments have been delayed, too. It shows up in my gmail, but says it was sent 15 minutes ago...weird. And I'm on super duper elitist Safari.

For me part of this confusion is coming because comments don't seem to be posting right away. I will say something and then suddenly four or five comments will have posted but they all say they were like ten minutes ago. It's strange. And I am an elitist using Firefox, so I shouldn't have this problem! One more Firefox perk: automatic spell check. You never have to worry about using the Sugar spell check. Although, sometimes it says things are not words when they clearly are. Oh well.

But I'm sure people will find a way to say the same things about me. That seems to be the norm around here.

I didn't think you were being condescending in the least, torg. I just wanted to make sure what I was saying was clear.

I think it has been made into a bigger deal than was originally intended. I do agree that she seems very enthusiastic, like Chelsea when she was out campaigning for her Mom. I have my opinion, and that is totally cool if you disagree. No worries there. To de-escalate this even further, Pop gets a hug. :hug:

Saying that it seems like she's out stumping for her dad willingly, not because she's being dragged along doesn't in any way imply that she's not biased. I guess I just feel that some politicians' kids are resentful of the spot light and they hate being dragged around to events and they suffer through the fake smiles etc. And they do it because they are supposed to. Contrary to that, Meaghan seems excited about being out there. I don't even know why this is being discussed at this point.

>I didn't say that you did say they did. Okay, I didn't say you did say that I said you said they did. This is getting too confusing, and I can't tell what comments are directed at what. I really wish we had threaded or nested comments. My opinion is that Meghan McCain is fibbing or exaggerating when she said her parents have not taught her to control what she says or not to trust. Other than that, she seems lovely. Just my opinion. I'm sure others disagree and would find ways that I'm assuming something, picking a fight, or being condescending. : ) >Although, I don't even see why this is worth debating. I agree.

When pop said that she was not supporting her Dad just because she was supposed to, I just didn't see how that became the conclusion. IMO, it would have to be pretty extraordinary circumstances to get a daughter to feel no obligation to support their father when they ran for President. I wasn't discussing whether her support was forced, I was talking about the point of whether she would feel an obligation to ("supposed to"). It is completely fine that she states her opinion. I was just stating my opinion about her opinion. :)

"I don't see how you can make that assessment." Jill it's just my opinion. I'm not stating it as fact. I'm basing it solely on her level of involvement, which doesn't appear to be that of "appearances and forced smiles". It really appears she's passionate and very involved. Of course she's biased. No one is saying she isn't.

Actually, I think saying she has natural bias only goes to support what Pop and I are saying: That her support for her dad is in fact natural and is not forced.
