Former Vice President Dick Cheney said that John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin as a running mate in 2008 was a "mistake" in an interview with ABC News.
I like Governor 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.
Cheney said that he has privately offered advice to Mitt Romney and his adviser running the VP search process, Beth Myers.
The rest of the Cheney interview will air Monday on Good Morning America, World News with Diane Sawyer and Nightline.
