John McCain has got to be sh*tting me if he thinks he has any standing as a VP candidate vetter (bold is mine):

“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.”

Here is his qualified replacement.
