Meghan McCain mum on potential Palin Support

(CNN) - She's become decidedly more outspoken since her father lost his bid for the presidency last November, but there's one question Meghan McCain refuses to answer: whether she sees herself supporting Sarah Palin should the Alaska governor run for president.

In an interview on CNN's "No Bias, No Bull" Wednesday night, the daughter of Arizona Sen. John McCain said she couldn't "possibly make a prediction about 2012 right now."

"I honestly don't think that's a relevant question," McCain said when asked if she would support her father's running mate. "I have to find out who is running in 2012, I mean, what - there's broad personalities that happen. And it's four years from now. A lot of things can happen. A lot of things can change.

"...I have to see who else is on the table."

It's not the first time the usually blunt McCain daughter has gone silent on the issue of the former vice presidential candidate. McCain told an interviewer in January, "Sarah Palin is the only part of the campaign that I won't comment on publicly."

    Other than being the daughter of a guy who didn't even win the Presidency, who is Meghan McCain? A nobody. What has she done to deserve this airtime or space? Who cares what she thinks? Get a real pundit out there.

    I am one Obama supporter who STILL does not like her or care what she has to say. Is this the same Meghan who stood there and enjoyed those hate rallies her old man conducted? She's a spoiled brat with no sense of responsibility or character. Please go away far, far away. She's a hypocrite with no ethics just like her mother.

    I doubt most of you posters fit into Meghan McCain's target audience.
    She is trying to engage the young crowd that tends to eschew the whole political process,and that can only be a good thing.The GOP obviously needs to update their brand name and having someone like
    Meghan can only help their cause.
    That being said,she will probably be tossed aside by a party so entrenched with ancient ideologies that will render her"persona non grata".Plus,she's hotter than that tooth-pick,vile,hate spewing tart Ann Coulter.

    Everyone knows where they stand on Palin. Republicans who are against her are afraid to say it because the Palin camp and Rush will tear into them. Those that are for her are anti intellectual, anti choice bigots and losers. Palin herself is the most repulsive, grotesque reactionary to seek high office since Spiro Agnew. She is indeed running for president, mainly to try to undo the embarrassment she caused herself and the country during the campaign. However, as undeducated and inexperienced as she is, she's likely to cause scores of additional "cringe" moments. Finally, she's finished. She's unelectable both locally and nationally going forward.

    Sapwolf has it right, the country wants a choice, slavery vs freedom, socialism vs republic, government control vs free market enterprise.
    With McCain, he was too much like the liberals, hence, the GOP lost. There is a reason why people over 40 prefer freedom, a republic style government, and free market enterprise. That is what has made our country great and provided the wealth and prosperity for our citizens. Take all that away, as is currently being done, and you will have mediocrity and a poor country. Think about it people. Our schools and universities have been brainwashing our children, and that is revealed in the way they think and vote. Hence we have an inexperienced charismatic individual who is clueless about how to lead a country, and who would rather be liked than make the tough decisions needed to get this country on track. We are in deep doodoo!
