John McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, appeared on NBC’s “Today” show this morning to promote her father’s campaign and plug her new book. Near the end of the interview, she was asked about Barack Obama’s claim that her father “doesn’t get it.”

“I have two brothers serving in the military, one that’s about to redeploy to Iraq. My father is obviously a famous war hero. No one knows what war is like other than my family. Period.”
