LOS ANGELES, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Cindy McCain, wife of Republican U.S. Senator John McCain, says she doesn't know if Sarah Palin is capable of running the country should she run for president.

Palin was John McCain's running mate when the senator ran for president in 2008.

When asked Thursday by "The Talk" host Julie Chen if Palin is capable of running the country, Cindy McCain, who appeared on the show with her daughter Meghan, responded: "I don't know, and this is not a criticism of Sarah, because I can only speak from where I came from. I know the body of work that my husband came from and I know where he stood and I know what he believes in. What I want from somebody is what I wanted from my husband, which is the sense to run this country."

McCain added that she thinks Palin has the "sense" and "wherewithal" to hold the country's highest office.

"I just hope she has the ability to understand that we have to include everybody in this party and this country. And again, I am not criticizing Sarah. But I understand that we are going to lose our young people to politics unless we include everybody in the process," McCain said.
