Picture of the Day —Meghan McCain —09/28/2008

Good morning, Netizens...

In our first Picture of the Day, Meghan McCain, 23, left, speaks to a fan as she signs copies of her best-selling book, "My Dad, John McCain," at the Treehouse Toys store in Oxford, Miss. The book, ranked No. 2 on the New York Times Children's Hardcover Picture Books category, is a first-person story of her father's Vietnam war experiences, his decision to run for president and highlights of family life.

On June 12, 2008, McCain wrote on her blog that she had changed her party registration to Republican as a “symbol of my commitment to my dad and to represent the faith I have in his ability to be an effective leader for our country and to grow and strengthen the Republican party when he is elected President of the United States." (from her Blog) Meaghan McCain's Blog

She originally attended Columbia University where she obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Art History. McCain originally planned to become a music journalist, and interned at Newsweek magazine and Saturday Night Live. McCain later decided to pursue fashion design, and has said that she hopes to one day design a "a high-end couture line that goes up to plus sizes." Perhaps more interesting than that, in 2008, Meghan published a book entitled My Dad, John McCain which is selling quite well and has stated that she hopes to write a "satirical account" of her experiences on the campaign trail when the election is over.

It strikes me as interesting that Senator John McCain has such a talented, creative daughter who is being overshadowed by Governor Sarah Palin.

Fascinating. Were you aware of Meghan McCain's abilities prior to now?
