“Never! Never! Never! Never!” That’s Meghan McCain’s very definitive response when asked whether she’ll ever run for public office.

“I’m not a politician,” the daughter of former Presidential candidate and current U.S. Senator John McCain says, adding that she can be a little thin-skinned. “When it comes to people attacking the way I look, I get a little thin-skinned, but politics, I’m fine. If you can’t handle the heat in the kitchen, then you shouldn’t be in there cooking.”

Instead, Meghan is carving out a career in media. She’s a New York Times best-selling author, and she’s hosting a new show that’s billed as a ‘docu-series’ called “Raising McCain.” It’s part talk-show, part documentary and all aimed at the 18-34 demographic, as is the brand-new cable TV network it’s on, Pivot.
