Cheney Says Picking Palin Was a Mistake

Former Vice President Dick Cheney told ABC News he wouldn't comment on the advice he gave Mitt Romney on picking a running mate but he was harsh in his assessment of Sen. John McCain's decision to pick Sarah Palin four years ago.

Said Cheney: "That one, I don't think was well handled."

He added: "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."
