The Second Palin Interview

My thought experiment for the night–what if Sarah Palin were Obama’s running mate? With the exception of her stand on drilling in ANWR, very little Palin said during this interview was even particularly conservative; it was Washington-bashing of a very high order, which is just what the doctor ordered for Obama at the end of last year. Twist it a little to the Left and you could have an attack on Washington for alleged cronyism in leading to the war in Iraq. So imagine it: Obama chooses a Western female governor, young and attractive, with five children and a surreally poised way with a television camera. Democrats would feel about her exactly the way Republicans do right now. And Republicans would complain about her inexperience and make fun of her and be just as terrified of her as Democrats are of Palin.
