Former McCain Strategist Steve Schmidt Trashes Sarah Palin in "60 Minutes" Interview; Defends Katie Couric - Video 1/10/10

Watch CBS News Videos Online

Here is video of former McCain Campaign Chief Strategist Steve Schmidt on "60 Minutes" last night, where he claims McCain decided to choose Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate at the last minute as a replacement for preferred choice Sen. Joe Lieberman.

Schmidt says the decision was made late Sunday night just before the beginning of the Republican National Convention in 2008 as they sat around a table and ate "deep fried burritos."

Schmidt essentially trashes Palin in the interview, saying she knew little about Foreign Policy and other issues. He did say she was a "quick study." He claims Palin did poorly in the Katie Couric interview because she "did not prepare for it." Schmidt actually defended Couric, saying he did not feel Couric "asked a single unfair question" in the interview.

Couric didn't ask a single unfair question?
As I understand it, it was a wide ranging interview editted (cherry picked?) down to a few minutes.
I wonder what the rest would be like.

Of course he is smearing Palin--he has fat dude syndrome. He would never stand a chance with a woman of that caliber.

Hilary might give him a second nod.

Based on what I've seen of Palin since the election I can only conclude that her handlers during the election were absolute morons. If they said, go out there and argue your positions McCain may be the one ruin the economy instead of Obiden...Oops
