Palin: GOP Nominee Should Choose VP Capable of Going ‘Rogue’

Former Alaska Gov. and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin says her party’s presidential nominee should take some risk in choosing a running mate, reports The Hill.

"What I would advise Mitt Romney, or whoever the nominee is: don't necessarily play it safe and do just what the GOP establishment expects them to do," she said Tuesday on NBC's "Today" show, which she is guest-hosting.

The conventional path would be to "take somebody just kinda going along to get along, not willing to really shake it up, not willing to go rogue and say that we need relentless and sudden reform of our government to put it back on the side of the people," Palin said

“Going Rogue,” the title of her 2009 book, represents a strong theme for Palin. Sen. John McCain’s choice of the former governor as his running mate in 2008 is still a matter of contention within the GOP. Palin defended her credentials. "I would put my record up against any of the other potential GOP vice presidential nominees last round," she said.

Whoever is chosen this time around will face unfair treatment from the establishment media, Palin said. "It doesn't matter if that person has national-level experience or not, they're gonna get clobbered by the lamestream media who does not like the conservative message,” she said. “It doesn't matter if they're a known commodity to the mainstream, lamestream, or not."
