Summary

Meghan McCain came to prominence as the straight-talking, progressive daughter of the 2008 Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain. And her profile has only risen since the election ended in favor of the other guy. What makes Meghan so appealing? As a new role model for young, creative, and vocal members of the GOP, she’s unafraid to mix it up and speak her mind. In Dirty Sexy Politics she takes a hard look at the future of her party. She doesn’t shy away from serious issues and her raucous humor and down-to-earth style keep her positions accessible.

In this witty, candid, and boisterous book, Meghan takes us deep behind the scenes of the campaign trail. She steals campaign signs in New Hampshire, tastes the nightlife in Nashville, and has a strange encounter with Laura and Jenna Bush at the White House. Along the way, she falls in love with America—while seeing how far the Republican Party has veered from its core values of freedom, honesty, and individuality. In Dirty Sexy Politics, Meghan McCain gives us a true insider's account of life on a campaign trail.

Refreshing but naive?

The John McCain I admired for so long is, in fact, alive and well in his daughter. This book reflects what so many of us admired in John McCain, Bob Dole, Barry Goldwarter, and others who were Americans before they were Republicans--politians who did not define what is best for the county by what is best for themselves. This book is an honest and straightforward view from a very smart, albiet youthfully naive, young lady who is not afraid to voice her views even if, today, they conflict with someone she so obviously idolizes: her father.
I do differ with at least one of Megan's conclusions, though: Pallin's affect on the outcome of the 2008 elections. While Pallin certainly electrified the base, the thought of her possibly running this country is absolutely what pushed me and many others who may have voted for McCain into the Obama camp.

A unique, personal diary of history in progress

After graduating college, Meghan took two friends to join her on her father's presidential campaign while she wrote a blog. Ms. McCain's thoughts are passionate even if they are not particularly deep, but she is charming and doesn't take too long to share her story.

Battling fellow Republicans while waiting for the Democratic field to narrow, McCain's big/small, on/off campaign was bizarre and brassy. Meghan's ring-side seat perspective is engaging, often extremely revealing and fun to share.

Occasionally dirty, not often sexy, the main word for this political story is energetic. Ms. McCain has some great stories - enjoy them!

A new generation

My daughter shows me what's good in Democrats and my wife does that for Conservative Independents. Me, I am a Republican from long ago. Find great peace and solace in the mere existence of Megan Mcain and her audible books.

Good for every political shade

As a progressive I do not agree with the author on many policies or politics. However, this book was refreshingly honest and the exact dialoge that we as a country should be striving for. Dialoge that understands that we have to find a middle ground and listen to each other with believing the other side to be evil. I admire Meghan McCain for bucking her own party, not out of the need for attention, but for her need to be true to herself and her beliefs.

Loved the book, but the narration was awful!

One drawback in having the author narrate- if they are not accustomed to public speaking, they tend to speak way to fast and without much intonation, as if they can't wait to get it over with. That's what happened here; although I think the book is worth buying I wish Audible would do a better job of monitoring and mentoring their narrations.
