The media have headlined this story differently - blaming Sarah Palin - but it appears John McCain doesn't regret picking her as his vice presidential nominee.
He wishes he had the guts to pick Joe Lieberman instead.
Lieberman, who was the Democratic nominee for vice president eight years prior.
You may not like Palin, but her brand of candidates now fill the House, Senate and White House.
There might not be a Republican party today if McCain had picked Lieberman to join his ticket.
