Sure, Meghan McCain is the daughter of a former presidential candidate (John McCain 2008, anyone?). So it's little surprise that when her new three-hour daily radio show called America Now debuts on Monday, her first guest will be a man running for the White House who also happens to be a family friend (Lindsey Graham 2016!)

Meghan McCain has officially gone green – as in, marijuana green.

During an appearance on Tuesday's Tonight Show with Jay Leno, McCain discussed her new book, America, You Sexy Bitch, which includes a section about her advocating for the legalization of pot.

"I was living in Los Angeles very briefly last year, and I was shocked at how people here smoke weed the way people in New York pour wine," she said. "Once I started doing research onto the economic benefits for our country by decriminalizing marijuana, I decided to come out publicly in support of it."

Sarah Palin, John McCain Disparage HBO's Game Change

Neither appears to have seen it, but Sarah Palin and John McCain both took shots this weekend at Game Change, the HBO movie about their unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign. The film premiered Saturday night.

Palin, 48, portrayed in the film by Julianne Moore, told Fox News before the premiere that she was "not concerned about an HBO movie based on a false narrative when there are so many other things to be concerned about."

She added: "I believe my family has the right priorities and knows what really matters. For instance, our son called from Afghanistan yesterday and he sounded good, and that's what matters. Being in the good graces of Hollywood's 'Team Obama' isn't top of my list."
