ROME (AP) -- According to one man who would know, there is nothing stopping Sarah Palin from doing a great job as a vice president.
Vice President Dick Cheney told reporters in Rome on Monday that he "loved" Palin's speech to the Republican National Convention. He laughed when he recounted her line about the difference between hockey moms and pit bulls being a coat of lipstick.
"I thought her appearance at the convention was superb," Cheney said.
Asked whether he thought Palin could handle the job with her background as Alaska governor, he added, "There's no reason why Sarah Palin can't be a successful vice president in a McCain administration."
