Dick Cheney knows a thing or two about the responsibilities of a U.S. Vice President. First of all, he or she has to set a tone for the administration. Is this going to be a semi-transparent engine of national growth and heath or will it be a draconian death grinder of American populist ideals? Tough call; better get the VP on the horn. Then, it is up to the V.P. to make all of the important administrative decisions, answer all of the President's email, place padding on all the sharp corners in the White House and pay strict attention to the President's nap time.
Unfortunately, John McCain's pick for years ago just wasn't up to the task in his estimation…
"That one," Cheney said, "I don't think was well handled… 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."
Interestingly, Cheney's daughter Liz — whom he has been grooming for years to take over his place at the head of the High Council of Deatheaters — is not in agreement…
Rarely do I disagree with best VP ever but @SarahPalinUSA more qualified than Obama and Biden combined. Huge respect 4 all she's done 4 GOP.

Also, she's stronger than Superman, smarter than the gigantic brain that lives at the center of the Earth and more World's Greatest-y than R. Kelly. I could go on, but I wouldn't want to be accused of hyperbole.
