Former presidential nominee John McCain says he won't endorse a fellow Republican in the 2012 race.

GOP presidential nominee John McCain repeated his vow that he won't endorse a fellow Republican in the 2012 race, but he had an interesting take on two possible hopefuls.

McCain said on NBC's Meet the Press that he'd be "very happy" if his ex-running mate, Sarah Palin, decided to run for president next year, as well as "many of the governors" who are either testing the waters or in the midst of campaigns right now.

What about real estate mogul Donald Trump, who is atop the most recent Gallup Poll of the potential GOP presidential field along with former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee?

McCain suggested it's about the headlines for Trump.

"I think that Mr. Trump is having the time of his life. I congratulate him for getting the attention that he's getting," McCain said Sunday.
