Is Meghan McCain Considering A Future In Politics?

For Meghan McCain, politics have always been a way of life. The 37-year-old TV personality and conservative columnist has steadily made a living off of her political opinions. From her small beginnings as a blogger to speaking on Fox News to co-hosting "The View," it seems as though John McCain's daughter has done it all (via The Famous People). However, now, she might consider stepping off the sidelines and entering a true career in politics. In an interview with People, McCain said that she may one day run for office.

"At some point, maybe," she said in response to the direct question. "My tone keeps shifting because, quite frankly, the bench in Arizona is not great, but it's very Trump-y. The woman running for governor right now, Kari Lake, was endorsed by President Trump and is more than likely going to win. But it's still an interesting state filled with really interesting people. [Senator] Kyrsten Sinema, obviously, is a total independent in so many different ways."

Meghan McCain doesn't think she'd go far in politics

Meghan McCain did note that she was still uncertain about entering the political arena. "I'm definitely not in that phase, but it's more likely that I would run for office than host a show," she told People. "That's much more intriguing to me."

McCain then asked herself the question again. "What's more likely, are you going to host a show on Fox or run for office? At this point in my life, moving home to Arizona and running for office sounds way more interesting. I'm not running for office ... but I'm just saying if there was a metric of placing bets: Yes. If someone has a gun to your head [and says,] 'Pick one or the other'"

In addition, McCain was doubtful that her career would go very far. "People hate children of politicians. People hate it. So I would probably lose," she said. When asked what she would do instead, she revealed that she'd consider consulting (via Business Insider). "I really miss politics ... I have a friend who does political consulting for pretty high-level politicians, and I was thinking like maybe doing something like that in the future," she explained. "I feel very at home among political people. I feel very understood. We're all interested in the same things. And I feel really respected in a way that I don't necessarily feel in TV media, for whatever that's worth."
