Meghan McCain: Jesus Christ Couldn't Have Saved Father's White House Bid

Not even Jesus Christ himself could have salvaged Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) failed 2008 presidential campaign, McCain's daughter Meghan said in a recent interview that will air Thursday night on Ora.TV’s “PoliticKING with Larry King.”

"I think my father could have had Jesus Christ as his running mate, and it wouldn't have mattered in '07, I truly believe that," McCain said in regard to her father's decision to choose former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) as his vice presidential candidate. "I wish the media had been easier on her during that time, or at least more understanding.”

The daughter of the 2008 Republican presidential nominee also lashed out against GOP strategist Karl Rove, calling his recent comments about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s health “disgusting.”

“I think there was an era where Karl Rove was relevant, and I don’t know why people still give him attention,” McCain added.
