Rumors that Meghan McCain would be joining The View as the panel discussion show's resident Republican have been circulating for weeks now.

We recently reported that Meghan and Leah Remini were the front-runners to fill the vacant fifth seat at the roundtable, with McCain being slightly favored by producers.

Now it looks as though the job may be Leah's by default, as Meghan has reportedly turned down an offer from ABC in favor of sticking with her current gig with the online news show TakePart Live.

"Network execs really wanted her to be their new Elisabeth Hasselbeck, because of her Republican stance," a source tells Radar Online. "But ultimately Meghan turned it down. She doesn't mind doing geust appearances on the show, but it's not something she wants to do full time."

After firing Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd, The View was left with two empty seats at its famous round table. 

Rosie O'Donnell is returning to the show next season, a prospect that has many fans excited. But without an equally strong personality to keep her in check, there's a chance that Rosie may dominate the proceedings. 

The Rosie vs. Elisabeth Hasselbeck debates made for some of The View's best moments (and highest ratings), but it's unlikely that fans would want to tune in for midday fisticuffs season after season.

Plus, the intensity of the O'Donnell and Hasselbeck's arguments ended up taking a toll on the entire panel.

So producers are left with the challenge of keeping the discussions lively (a bunch of women sitting around agreeing with each other doesn't make for great television), without leaving the show's panel and audience bitterly divided.

Another day, another View casting rumor.

With Rosie O'Donnell almost definitely on board for a second stint as co-host, attention has now turned to who will be surrounding her and Whoopi Goldberg on ABC's table.

Might it be Andi Dorfman, an ABC staple? Sarah Palin, who has seemingly expressed some interest? Or perhaps... Meghan McCain?

Insiders tell E! News that John McCain's outspoken daughter is being considered for the gig, as Meghan has made numerous appearance on The View.

She also HATES Bristol Palin, so teaming her up wit Sarah Palin would bring in instant ratings. Do it, The View!

Meghan McCain is bringing her outspoken views to Pivot.

Yes, that's a television network. Or at least it's about to be.

The daughter of John McCain will anchor "Raising McCain" on the new network, which debuts on August 1, telling reporters on Friday that the series lets her "be crazy, be myself and talk about issues."

And those issues often upset Republicans.

DING! DING!

It is on between Meghan McCain and Ann Coulter.

The daughter of John McCain - who is often outspoken about typically Liberal ideas, such as marijuana legalization - went off on the conservative pundit this week after Coulter joked Meghan should be killed.

"Apparently, Ann Coulter made a joke about me being killed in a recent column," McCain Tweeted yesterday. "I should expect nothing less but disgusted regardless."

Meghan McCain enjoys the occasional joint, but that's not the reason she thinks it should be legal, though, as she explained on The Tonight Show.

In her new book America, You Sexy Bitch, McCain devotes an entire section advocating for the legalization of pot on numerous grounds.

"I was living in Los Angeles last year, and I was shocked at how people smoke weed the way people in New York pour wine," she said.

"Once I started doing research onto the potential economic benefits for our country by decriminalizing marijuana, I decided to come out publicly in support of it."

The daughter of John McCain repeated her comments on The View Wednesday morning, adding that she's "not a cannabis user ... frequently."

When Barbara Walters quipped that her "father's going to be so proud," Meghan McCain responded, "He knows everything ... and he loves me."

The discussion prompted Elisabeth Hasselbeck to suggest a breathalizer-style system for testing pot users' levels of intoxication before they drive.

Sherri Shepherd's response: "You don't leave the house when you're high."

McCain went on to name her preferred running mate for Mitt Romney - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie - and lament the lack of moderates in the GOP.

Meghan McCain is bashing Fox News' Greta Van Susteren on Twitter for inviting Lindsay Lohan to this weekend's White House Correspondents' Association dinner.

Not just for the sake of hating on Lohan, a la Rosie O'Donnell.

“Let me get this straight,” Meghan McCain, 27, tweeted. “Greta Van Susteren is bringing Lindsay Lohan to the WHC Dinner but has a moral offense to Louie C.K?”

In March, Van Susteren called for a boycott of the Radio/TV Correspondence Dinner over comedian C.K.'s past controversial statements about women.

"The headliner of this year’s Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner is “comedian” Louis C.K. Comedian? I don’t think so. Pig? yes," she wrote.

"He uses filthy language about women. Yes, the C word…and yes, even to describe a woman candidate for Vice President of the United States. It isn’t just Governor Palin he denigrates. He denigrates all women and looks to the crowd to laugh."

Apparently Megs isn't offended ... except by Greta. The daughter of U.S. Sen. John McCain may not be crazy about Lindsay attending, but she's still going.

The Republican blogger, columnist and author Tweeted that she's "headed to DC for the nerd prom." Just hope they don't seat her with Greta or LiLo.

Meghan McCain, daughter of U.S. Senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee John McCain, poses for Playboy this month. Innocently, of course.

Her mere presence in the men's mag (and some of the quotes she gave in an interview with it) are sure to raise eyebrows, but this one pic is it. Sorry.

Meghan revealed to Playboy that she “almost overdosed on Xanax” the day before the 2008 election, and dismissed any rumors that she is gay.

Using an obscene rhyme, Meghan, a same-sex marriage advocate, said was “strictly d!ckly” (straight), adding: “I can’t help it. I love sex and I love men.”

Shifting her focus elsewhere, Meghan McCain told Playboy that a memoir written by Bristol Palin, Sarah’s daughter known for her teen pregnancy, was a “total lie.”

At the WHCA dinner, Bristol “totally took off” when she saw Meghan across the room, lest Bristol be confronted about the book's remarks on the McCain family.

In Not Afraid of Life, Bristol dings Meghan and mom Cindy McCain for having “so much Louis Vuitton luggage, so many cell phones, so many helpers," etc.

Bristol Palin also writes of Meghan McCain that after their first meeting in 2008, she had the “sneaking suspicion that I might need to watch my back.”

"If he had endorsed Santorum, I mean, I would be like slitting my wrists on the table right now." - Meghan McCain on John McCain's endorsement of Mitt Romney

Like her dad, Meghan McCain does not mince words.

In the wake of Tuesday's Iowa caucus, she didn't hold back on her feelings about surprise second-place finisher and frequent McCain critic, Rick Santorum.

“My father did not become the nominee having anything to do with the Iowa caucus. I find it completely irrelevant," she said. "If Rick Santorum becomes the nominee of this party, I mean, it is going to be bedlam and hysteria like you have never seen.”

As for whether a McCain endorsement will help Romney in next week's primary, the 27-year-old said it certainly couldn't hurt, given his popularity in the state.

"I think in New Hampshire the McCain name is very strong. If my father could run for Governor of New Hampshire right now, he'd probably still win," she added.

Romney leads N.H. and national polls in the Republican presidential race.

Levi Johnston isn't the only figure called out in Bristol Palin's memoir, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far. Yes ... Bristol actually has a memoir out.

One in which she reflects not-so-fondly on her initial impressions of Meghan McCain, whose father named Bristol's mom to the GOP ticket in 2008.

In the book, Bristol Palin, now 20, writes that during her first encounter with Sen. John McCain's daughter, now 26, she "ignored us the entire visit."

Bristol Palin After Plastic Surgery

There's no love lost between the offspring of the 2008 GOP ticket.

Palin "had a sneaking suspicion I might need to watch my back" and added that "Every time we saw Meghan McCain, she seemed to be constantly checking us out, always comparing my family to hers and complaining."

McCain takes issue with that statement and then some.

She Tweeted a YouTube video from 2008, showing herself with her arm around Sarah Palin's "sweet, sweet daughter Piper" smiling on a couch.

Meghan McCain Quotes

I have not known Bristol Palin very long, but there is a certain kinship I feel to her as I do other political daughters such as Chelsea Clinton, Jenna and Barbara Bush and Mary Cheney.

Meghan McCain

You can't fully understand it unless you have lived it. So I just wanted to let it be known that I support Bristol and the entire Palin family.
