Meghan McCain spoke openly about the current Republican primary during her Playboy interview, according to the Huffington Post.

McCain described the 2012 primary as lacking “electricity” among candidates.

McCain said, “It’s just been so lame. So many debates, so much blather, so much over saturation.”

McCain’s father Senator John McCain was GOP nominee in 2008.
“Granted, my father is not running, so I’m biased, and we have an incumbent president, which changes things. But where’s the electricity? You’d think someone would rise up and tap the frustration and energy of the Occupy movement or the Tea Party, but it just hasn’t’ happened yet.”

When asked about how the Republicans can win in November, McCain said, “The Republicans need someone to excite younger people, independents, Hispanic voters and the disenfranchised.

She believes that strong vice presidential candidate will make all the difference for the party.
“I think if Chris Christie is the vice presidential nominee we can change the weather and have a very good chance of beating Obama. I love that he’s no bullshit.”

Recently, McCain has been in the spotlight for her opinions. Last month, she referred to Rick Santorum as “unelectable” and has been spoken out against Santorum’s views on same-sex marriage.

McCain also hinted at Newt Gingrich to, “bow out with grace” and blamed him for certain issues among the party.

Her father has endorsed former governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney.

McCain feels that if her father was president, the recession would not be in the state it is in now, and morale in the military and the country would be higher.

When asked why America should listen to her, McCain responded, “But I’ve been in politics literally my entire life. My mom was pregnant with me at the 1984 Republican convention. I was on my father’s campaign when I was 13. I’ve earned the right to be here and talk about it, and I’m not scared to get down and dirty.”
