While Meghan McCain, daughter of almost-President Senator John McCain, didn’t strip down for her interview with Playboy, she didn’t hold back on shedding some light onto her own personal life.
In this month’s issue, the 27-year-old blonde political commentator is featured in a red dress while sprawled out on white satin sheets, evoking slight political undertones with the color choice but kept with Playboy’s well-known seductive style. Meghan McCain dished on dating, what turns her on and what it was like to almost be the next First Daughter.
"You would have the craziest first daughter ever,” said McCain theorizing about if her father had been elected in 2008, “who’d be making ridiculous headlines and hurting the administration every step of the way. That aside, I think Dad would have made an incredible president."
While McCain doesn’t shy away from politics, she doesn’t like to mix business with pleasure.
“Talk about a mood killer. I’m obsessed with this stuff [politics], but it doesn’t put me in the mood. When I’m dating, I want to hear what music a guy likes, what he does for fun, and I want him to make me laugh. If he can make me laugh, I don’t care if he looks like Zach Galifianakis; it’s an instant turn-on.”
Meghan then elaborated on her stance on gay rights which she supports: “Who people want to sleep with and who they want to love should not have anything to do with government politics at all. And if you see me in a gay bar, it’s only because they play the best music and my gay friends like to dance.”
She went on to clarify that she is not a lesbian, and is in fact “strictly dickly.”
"I’d be the first person to tell the world I was gay. I’m not private about anything. I think you should live how you should live. But I’m strictly dickly. I can’t help it. I love sex and I love men ... I’ve been hit on by women from time to time, and it might simplify my life if I were gay."
While her love life may appear to be all fun and games at the moment, her life was far from simple back in 2008 around election time. “The day before Election Day, I almost overdosed on Xanax. I had gained a lot of weight. I went up four sizes thanks to Starbucks and Snickers,” McCain told Playboy.
