Sen. John McCain responds to comments made by his former campaign advisor Steve Schmidt that McCain's former running mate, Sarah Palin, running for President in 2012, would bring forth a "catastrophic election result."

We were ahead in the polls, until the stock market crashed. And she still is a formidable force in the Republican Party. And I have great affection for her," he told John King on "State of the Union".

"Will Sarah and I -- did we always agree on everything in the past? Will we in the future? No. But let's let a thousand flowers bloom. Let's come up with a winning combination the next time."
