The former vice presidential candidate said McCain's remarks were like a “gut punch.”

Former Alaska Governor and one-time vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin said Friday that she remembers the 2008 campaign with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) fondly, even though he now says he wishes he had never chosen her to be his running mate.

Asked whether McCain's revelation hurt, she said, “Well, I don't lie, so I'll tell you, a bit. You know, I think I described it earlier as a 'gut punch.'”

She continued: “I'm going to choose to look back on the good times that we did have together. Because you know, a lot of that campaign was fun for us personally and for our families. And you know, I will never disparage someone who has served our country and has made a lot of sacrifices. That's how I look at him, as someone who has served all those years, and I certainly appreciate that, and many other aspects that I see, characteristics that I appreciate in Sen. McCain.”

In his new book, The Restless Wave, McCain says that he wishes he had chosen Sen. Joe Lieberman, a long-time independent who had caucused with the Democrats, as his running mate.
