Lawrence Eagleburger, one of those former Secretaries Of State McCain/Palin have proudly held up as supporting their bid for the White House, just sarcastically trashed Palin's ability to take over the presidency. The best he could do was say she would be "adequate" given some time in office and that many other veeps were also not up to snuff. (Which ones? hmmmm...mostly Republicans over the past few decades, right?)
And we made fun of Bill Clinton for not being hearty enough in his endorsement!
This is one of the secretaries whose name McCain was able to remember on Meet The Press...wonder what forgotten-man George Shultz would say about 'er?
