MSNBC contributor Meghan McCain was asked Thursday to compare Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin during an appearance on the network.

“What does she have that Sarah Palin doesn’t, didn’t?” asked Richard Wolffe, a fellow contributor.

“I think she’s… this is going to get me in trouble, but I actually think she’s just more smarter,” explained McCain.

“I think that she’s more um, you know, on foreign policy, I mean I just think all the things she’s done, the debates, I’ve been very impressed,” continued McCain, “and I just think she’s older and more established, and you know, she’s been a member of Congress for a very long time.”

Well said, Meghan.
