DescriptionThis morning on ABC’s This Week, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., weighed in on Mitt Romney’s hotly anticipated vice presidential pick. The former presidential candidate’s advice was clear.

“The absolute, most important aspect is, if something happened to him, would that person be well qualified to take that place?” said McCain. “I happen to believe that was the primary factor in my decision in 2008. And I know it will be Mitt’s.”


McCain encouraged Romney to pick a person that “he knows he could trust.”
