McCain Dishes on Palin

On the Tonight Show to promote her book Dirty Sexy Politics, Meghan McCain talked about the moment she learned that her father chose Sarah Palin to be his running mate.

Said McCain: "I found out about an hour before I went on stage with her. I think they were scared I'd say something and whatever and, you know, like the rest of the country, I had no idea who she was, and I was actually, like, crying on the bus on the way to the rally... And I found out who she was, and I remember being on stage and distinctly remembering, God, let her not have any skeletons in the closet, please God. And if you see any video footage of it, I looked panicked. I was just scared. I was really scared. I didn't know her... my initial reaction was 'who the hell is Sarah Palin', like everybody else."
