| by Michael Allen

On Wednesday's 'CBS This Morning,' co-host Erica Hill asked Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for his thoughts on GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney’s possible VP pick.

Hill said: “Sarah Palin has said that she thinks the nominee, if it is in fact Mitt Romney, should, quote, ‘go rogue.' What’s your advice?”

McCain replied, laughing: “I think it should be Sarah Palin.”

“Do you really?” co-host Charlie Rose wondered.

McCain added: “I think we have some very qualified candidates. Obviously, [Florida Sen.] Marco Rubio is in the top tier. [New Jersey Gov.] Chris Christie, there are a number of candidates we have out there. [Louisiana Gov.] Bobby Jendal, [Indiana Gov.] Mitch Daniels. We have a wealth of talent out there, and I’m sure that Mitt will make the right choice.”
