McCain key foreign policy advisor and former Secretary of State Larry Eagleburger appeared on NPR yesterday and offered this surprising little bit of straight talk about Sarah Palin.

NPR: "Are you entirely comfortable with Sarah Palin as the Vice President of the United States? That she would be ready to take over in a crisis if she should, e called up to do so."

Eagleburger: "That's a very good question. I'm being facetious here. Look, I don't.. Of course not. I don't think at the moment she's prepared to take over the reigns of the presidency."

You gotta applaud the guy for at least being honest. That's some pretty devastating stuff.
