ABC News is offering a summary of former vice-president Dick Cheney’s comments about the selection of Sarah Palin for the 2008 ticket:

“That one,” Cheney said, “I don’t think was well handled.”

“The test to get on that small list has to be, ‘Is this person capable of being president of the United States?'”

Cheney believes Sarah Palin failed that test.

“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.”
