No, not that McCain. I’m talking about John’s daughter Meghan, who has written a campaign memoir in which she admits that she stole Romney campaign signs. Here are other astute political insights, as she considered what she deemed to be the inevitable: a McCain/Romney ticket.
“We wondered whether the Five Brothers, the nickname for the Romney sons, could handle the constant drinking and swearing that went on in our campaign – the press corps included,” she goes on. “Not to mention all the tawdry stories about crazy-sex you never read about.”
Despite deep enmity between the two camps during the primaries, Romney quickly endorsed McCain’s candidacy after his own withdrawal and worked hard on the Arizona senator’s behalf, earning a place on the eventual nominee’s short list for the vice-presidential nomination.
“It was hard to adjust to nice thoughts about Romney,” McCain writes, “or to stop laughing at him.”
Honestly, I was really disappointed that Gov. Romney wasn’t the VP nominee… until I realized that it was probably all a long shot against President Obama.
In 2012, however, it’s a totally different story, and I’m glad Gov. Romney doesn’t have all the baggage of being linked so closely with McCain to deal with.
