    McCain campaigned during her son's 2008 presidential campaign, and was active in 2007[13] and 2008 despite her advanced age.[14] In November 2007, her comments about Mitt Romney, his role in organizing the 2002 Winter Olympics and Mormonism during an MSNBC interview generated minor political controversy and forced her son to respond to clarify her remarks.[15][16] In August 2008, she had a fashion shoot and was featured in a pair of Vogue magazine articles.[17][18] On May 13, 2009, she appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.[19] Her comments about Rush Limbaugh and Keith Olbermann created a stir with politicos on both sides even after her son's failed presidential bid.[20][21]
