All you'll ever need to know about first daughter wannabe Meghan McCain, courtesy of The Washington Post:
[Meghan] told MTV she thinks Barack Obama is "sexy." She has a teeny tiny tattoo of a star on her foot. ("I have always been drawn to people with tattoos," she writes on her blog.) She's been known to drink beer on primary nights when she's really stressed out. She adores the stylings of the corset-wearing burlesque stripper Dita Von Teese, and she told GQ she thinks the uber-trashy bisexual hook-up show "A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila" is "hilarious!"

On a visit to the Butler University Bulldogs, Chelsea Clinton showed that she can be quite the bulldog herself. When a student asked Chelsea if she thinks the Monica Lewinsky scandal hurt her mother's credibility, she quipped, "...I do not think that's any of your business."

As you may have noticed, I seldom use the Blogette as a medium to discuss social or political issues unless I feel particularly compelled to do so. This is one of those times. One of the unintended consequences of my dad becoming the presumptive Republican nominee is the increased level of public scrutiny on him and our family. Of course I expected more than my fair share when I decided to put myself out there and write a blog on the campaign; however, I've been surprised by critical comments regarding my weight and body shape. It recently reached a ridiculous level when someone handed me a business card for a plastic surgeon and suggested I needed liposuction. I am proud of my curves and have always loved my fuller figure, as should every woman who is not a size "0". I want to be a positive role model for my little sister and all of the other young women who read my blog and help perpetuate a more positive image for women, regardless of their body size. I feel empowered to tell everyone that it's important to maintain a healthy weight that works for them - not everyone is going to be model thin, nor should they expect to be. To every young girl reading this blog, it is inner beauty and happiness that makes a person beautiful, not a number on a scale.
