Meghan McCain Speaks Out on Palin

In her new book, Dirty Sexy Politics, Sen. John McCain's daughter Meghan McCain breaks her silence about Sarah Palin, writing that she brought "drama, stress, complications, panic and loads of uncertainty" to the losing campaign.

She writes: "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. But I couldn't have predicted just how serious it was going to get."

McCain admits that she wanted her father to pick Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) as his running mate, though she told ABC News that she doesn't think Palin was the reason her father lost.
