fashion critiques from the campaign trail

Meghan McCain
Sen. John McCain’s daughter Meghan is writing a children’s book about her father which is set to be released in September—just about the time of the Republican National Convention. What better way for the 71-year-old to reach a different demographic – diapers in daycare. It also sounds like a smart way to sway parents.

Aladdin Books, of Simon & Schuster, will publish the biographical picture book, and some of the proceeds will go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

“This book will offer children the unique opportunity to see the character building events that happened over his lifetime, experiences that led up to his current bid to become the future President of the United States," said Meghan, the oldest of the Junior McCain Clan of four.

Meghan, who has interned at Newsweek and Saturday Night Live, also has a blog http://www.mccainblogette.com/, which covers the campaign through the eyes of a 23-year-old.

“Yesterday, Dad gave a speech to the FL Society of Newspaper Editors in Orlando ... Mom is back on the trail and is having a blast.” It’s not often that “campaign” and “having a blast” are linked together, but that’s what you get when you visit Meghan’s blog. She also posts loads of pictures that show the senator from a more personal perspective.

While her site isn't politically poignant, you can catch “Dad” grilling, “Mom” grinning and fashion critiques from the campaign trail.

Side note: McCain's wife Cindy also agreed to write a book earlier this year, but changed her mind and the deal was canceled.
