Meghan Marguerite McCain is an American columnist, author and blogger. She is the daughter of U.S. Senator John McCain and Cindy Hensley McCain. McCain first received media attention in 2007 for her blog, McCain Blogette, on which she documented life on the campaign trail and mused about fashion, music, and pop culture. In January 2009, she became a contributing author for The Daily Beast.

She has been a public figure for most of her life, appearing at the 1996 Republican National Convention. She was raised in Phoenix, Arizona and attended Xavier College Preparatory, an all-girl Catholic high school. She went on to Columbia University, where she majored in art history. McCain originally planned to become a music journalist, and interned at Newsweek magazine and Saturday Night Live. McCain later decided to pursue fashion design, and has said that she hopes to one day design a "a high-end couture line that goes up to plus sizes."

Her campaign memoir, Dirty Sexy Politics, was published in September 2010. In it she finally unleashes her feelings about Palin and describes the ups and downs she experienced with the McCain campaign staff. She states that the Republican Party seemed "to have lost its way in the last ten years", that the conservative movement seemed "hell-bent on restricting our freedoms rather than expanding them", and that within the Republican Party, she felt a certain stress to take over the ideas of others, like Mitt Romney, especially regarding same-sex marriage, which was a danger for the existence of the party. The book also serves as a coming-of-age narrative about herself. During the promotional tour for the book, McCain cancelled an appearance at Juniata College due to what she called, "unforeseen professional circumstances." However, according to her Twitter, she was actually in Las Vegas on a girl's weekend, as she got over a boyfriend ending their relationship via e-mail.
