(Newser) – John McCain thinks a lot of people are getting ahead of themselves. Asked on CBS’ Early Show if he’d endorse Sarah Palin for president in 2012, he said she’d make an “outstanding candidate,” but that it was too early to say he’d endorse her. “I don’t think Sarah would want me to, before she’s even able to make a decision” about running, he said, according to the AP, adding “It’s very early to start picking winners and losers.”

For that matter, McCain thinks it’s too early to call the midterms. “I'm a little worried about some of my Republican friends who are taking a victory lap about a week ahead of time,” he said. “Indications are that, as always, the Democrats have a very sophisticated get-out-the-vote operation. We've got to get our vote out.” (Read more John McCain stories.)
