What would happen if our current crop of politicians had grown up with Facebook? "We might have photos of John McCain in Florida slurping body shots off his stripper girlfriend. Barack Obama rolling a joint on a beach in Hawaii. George W. Bush passed out at a Yale frat party, 40-ounce beer bottles duct-taped to his hands," according to an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times written by Ivygate founders Jacob Savage and Maureen O'Connor. In other words, it would be awesome, and probably make our jobs a lot easier!
While Obama et al have lucked out in that their youthful transgressions have not been documented online for all to see, their offspring—potentially the kids who will carry the torch and one day run for office themselves—are not so lucky. (Just ask Pierce Bush.) In that spirit, we decided to mock up Facebook profiles for John McCain's bubbly daughter, Meghan McCain, and Obama's two girls, Malia and Natasha. Incriminating photos and drunk wall posts to follow! Click here to see the candidates' kids pages!
