Apparently, former Vice President Dick Cheney thinks it was “a mistake” for John McCain to have chosen former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008:
Former Vice President Dick Cheney said it was a mistake for Republican Sen. John
McCain to pick Sarah Palin as his vice presidential nominee.
“The test to get on that small list has to be, ‘Is this person capable of being president of the United States?,” Cheney said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“I like Gov. Palin. I’ve met her. I know her. She – attractive candidate. But based on her background, she’d only been governor for, what, two years. I don’t think she passed that test … of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake,” he said.
