McCain spent weeks questioning the inexperience of his Democratic opponent, Senator Barack Obama, but attacks on that respect have turned against him with his choice of Palin.
He especially received some harsh words from Democrat John Kerry: "John McCain's judgment is once again, put at issue, because he's chosen somebody who clearly doesn't meet the national security threshold, who is not ready to be president tomorrow. He's chosen somebody who actually doesn't believe that climate change is man made. He's chosen somebody who has zero -- zero experience in foreign policy."
However, McCain defended the pick on Sunday, and told Fox News: "She's got the right judgement. She doesn't think like Senator Obama does that Iran is a minor irritant."
"She's been a commander in chief of the Alaska national guard," adding that her son will shortly be deployed to Iraq. "I'm proud of her knowledge."
