ABC News’ Mary Bruce reports:
Senator John McCain said this morning that Sarah Palin would be an outstanding candidate for president in 2012, but that it was too early for him to offer an endorsement.
“I'd certainly know that Sarah would be an outstanding candidate. But neither she nor I would want to say I would endorse her at this time,” McCain said of his 2008 running mate on CBS’ “The Early Show.” “I'm proud of her. I'm very grateful for all the things she's done to invigorate our party. But I think it's very early to start picking winners and losers.”
McCain said he still holds the former Alaska governor in “the highest regard” and is “entertained by the attacks of the liberal media against her.”
“It’s very entertaining to watch,” McCain said.
