Fox’s Stuart Varney asked Lawrence Eagleburger to explain comments he made indicating that Sarah Palin wasn’t qualified to be vice president. Eagleburger could not bring himself to endorse Palin in an interview with NPR’s Talk of the Nation yesterday.

Eagle told Varney that he had been quoted correctly but made a “terrible mistake” in saying that Palin wasn’t prepared to be vice president.

Varney asked, “I do want to give you another opportunity here to straighten it out. You do feel that she’s a quick learner and would be good as vice given a few days?”

“No. A few days. No,” replied Eagleburger. “She has made it clear that she’s a quick learner.”
