Meghan McCain is urging Mitt Romney not to run for president in 2016 for his family’s sake.

The daughter of John McCain wrote in the Washington Post:

Those of us who’ve been through it multiple times, who’ve watched our parents be rejected by the American public more than once? We make up a weird, lonely island of political misfit toys. I’m on it. So are the Romneys. And when I think about what they might go through again, if their father runs a third time, I shudder.

Don’t get me wrong. I like Mitt Romney. I like his wife and children. But take it from someone who knows — being the direct spawn of a presidential nominee is arduous and excruciatingly public. It’s an experience that will always hold a very special place in my heart, but I wouldn’t put myself or my family through it again for anything in the world. And it’s inconceivable to me that anyone else would either — especially after losing  as your party’s most recent nominee.

A panel discussed the advice on “Outnumbered” this afternoon.

Rachel Campos-Duffy, who has seven kids, said she thinks McCain is right and that the experience could be difficult on a family.

Kennedy said McCain’s warning is a good one to heed for politicians with young kids, like Paul Ryan.
