Gov. Schwarzenegger on Palin (While Stumping for McCain): Not Ready Yet

Yesterday, John McCain chatted with Don Imus, and expressed frustration about Republicans who've questioned Sarah Palin's credentials. "What's their problem?" McCain asked.

"I think she is the most qualified of any that has run recently for vice president," McCain added. "I'm amazed. I'm amazed."

McCain's amazement notwithstanding, he's right about one thing -- a lot of Republicans are very concerned about the idea of putting Palin one 72-year-old heartbeat from the presidency. Apparently, even California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) still needs some convincing.

The McCain campaign convinced Schwarzenegger to hit the campaign trail, making appearances on McCain's behalf in battleground states like Ohio. He sat down with CNN's Campbell Brown yesterday, and unfortunately for the campaign, strayed from the script.

Brown asked Schwarzenegger if he believes Palin is, in the event of an emergency, qualified to be president. He replied, "I think that she will get to be qualified."
