McCain Fille Inks Big, Fat Book Deal

Meghan McCain, daughter of former US presidential hopeful John McCain has signed a six figure deal with Hyperion. As The New York Observer breathlessly reported:
John McCain's 24-year-old daughter Meghan has a book deal! Sources say Hyperion has prevailed over at least three other publishers in an auction that began earlier this week, following a round of meetings during which the in-your-face young conservative and the literary agent she shares with her father, Sterling Lord Literistic president Flip Brophy, discussed a number of possible approaches to the book with editors around town.

Several sources said the advance Ms. McCain will receive from Hyperion, which is owned by the Disney Company, is in the high six figures.
It all makes me wonder, maybe McCain pere was looking too far North for a running mate in the 2008 US presidential elections? I’m not suggesting that choosing author/daughter/blogger Meghan over Alaska soap opera maven Sarah Palin would have delivered him to the White House (that would be silly), but maybe everyone wouldn’t have laughed so hard while he took a run at it?

The New York Observer’s reportage of Meghan’s book deal is here. The New York Times chimes in here. McCain’s surprisingly sharp scribblings on The Daily Beast are here.

As a McCain supporter it's fun to see Meagan McCain show that same spark that her father has in a new and fresh way.
