Meghan McCain won’t commit to Joe.
It’s a surprising turn, given the word on the street last year.
From the Washington Examiner at the time:
In an extraordinary snub to Trump, who derided McCain’s Vietnam War service and mocked him even after his death last August at age 81, the McCain family is preparing to break with the Republican Party. …
Sources close to both Biden’s presidential campaign and the McCains said that at some point during the White House race, McCain’s widow Cindy, 64, and daughter Meghan, 34, a host on The View, will offer their public support in the hope of removing Trump from office in 2020.
A former McCain campaign official with close ties to the family said support for Biden was a given, but they needed to calculate how they could best help the former vice president. Both Cindy and Meghan McCain remain Republicans, and one consideration is whether endorsing Biden in the Democratic primary could do him more harm than good. “It’s undeniable that Joe Biden and the McCain family have a very close, personal relationship. It’s about what’s good for him (Biden).”
The source said they expected Meghan McCain to speak out in favor of Biden should he get the nomination, but a Cindy McCain endorsement could come sooner.
But friend of the family or not, it’s quite a step-out to endorse this guy:

Apparently, Meghan’s capable of “incredibly different attitudes about different things,” too: Though she’s known as no fan of Trump, Wednesday night, she told Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live her voting plans are a mystery.
“Why does everyone ask me if I’m getting fired or quitting every 20 seconds? No other host has to deal with this B.S. Yes, I’m coming back — it’s an election cycle!”
Then host Andy Cohen dropped the $10,000 question:
“You are voting for Joe Biden, I’m assuming?”
She swatted that like a fly:
“I’m not saying who I’m voting for…but I’m not voting for Trump.”
The No-Trump vote’s a foregone conclusion. After all, she had this to say last year in March:
“He spends his weekend obsessing over wonderful, great men because he knows it, and I know it, and all of you know it: He will never be a great man.
“My father was his kryptonite in life and his kryptonite in death.”
And in response to Trump’s unkind words about her dad:
“[I] just thought, ‘Your life is spent on weekends not with your family, not with your friends, but obsessing, obsessing, over great men you could never live up to.’ That tells you everything you needed to know about his pathetic life. I genuinely feel bad for his family.”
That definitely sounds like a Biden voter.
But a lot’s happened in a year — namely Joe’s incessant word salad-tossing and otherwise strange moments in front of the camera.
Remember this one:
Not to mention, in perhaps an attempt to keep up with the young folk, Joe’s gone farther and farther Left.
And as the the party of the donkey’s trotted to the fringe, Meghan’s tried to warn them on The View — see “Meghan McCain Explodes on The View’s ‘Naive’ Democrats: 2020’s Democrats are ‘Not Going to be Good Enough to Beat’ Trump,” “Meghan McCain Puts Dems on Notice: ‘Laugh All You Want,’ but Trey Gowdy Joining the Trump Team Is ‘Bad News for Democrats,'” and “It Must’ve Hurt: Meghan McCain Defends Trump Over Dems’ COVID Contradictions.”
It seems to me Joe’s gotta a very outspoken Republican on a hit show daily, who’d like nothing more than to stump for him.
But the guy’s dropping the ball so substantially, she can’t bring herself to commit.
She told Andy:
“I want to see how this plays out, and I want to see the debates. I’m, like, such a last-minute – I mean, I’m so spoiled, because I’ve loved so many elections, and this one’s not my favorite for a lot of different reasons.”
As noted by The Daily Wire, some on Twitter were outraged by her hesitation to wave the Biden banner:
So, Meghan McCain says she’s not committing to voting for Joe Biden, the man who eulogized her father, instead she’d rather see the moronic orange criminal who keeps insulting her father’s service in the WH.
She’s married to the scumbag who owns The Federalist propaganda outlet.

John McCain was friends with Joe Biden for 40 years. They worked together even when they disagreed. Biden eulogized McCain.
Trump repeated insulted him.
But Meghan McCain can’t decide who to vote for.

Meghan McCain can't decide who she's voting for.
Biden eulogized your father after he passed.
Trump said he prefers war heroes who weren't caught and routinely made fun of your father after he'd died.
Wake the F up!!

Will she “wake up” to the beauty of Biden? And is Meghan typical of many, many voting Democrat at the moment?
Someone may hate Trump, but the presumptive challenger is evidently suffering from serious medical issues.
In the end, who’s better at the helm?
The debates may help clear things up. But if they’re done in a normal fashion, I can’t imagine them doing Joe any favors.
No worries, Meghan — there’s always Kanye.
