Sarah Palin leaves her options open and shows how she has learned to handle the press.
One of many advice columns Palin is likely to receive. Well, if the MSM is to be believed, all she needs to do is write a couple of books and run for President for two years and then she’s plenty qualified.
Fodder for the argument that Barack Obama won’t do much different in Iraq. If this is the start of a trend, he’ll have a lot of explaining to do to the Daily Kos crowd. Or maybe not, since perhaps the objection isn’t to the policy after all, but to the opposing party’s President.
Mark McKinnon makes a heck of a good suggestion on an item for Obama to demonstrate political independence: the card check bill. If he wanted to be really independent, he also could support the Colombia Free Trade Agreement.
Here’s something both Democrats and Republicans can probably agree upon: Obama can do better than John Kerry for Secretary of State.
Ooops — the market didn’t like the election returns? What a difference a day makes — now it’s no longer McCain’s problem.
This notion won’t be heard on MSNBC: “I feel compelled to point out that many of the people excited by massive voter shifts are confusing a) serious Bush hatred during a once-in-a-generation financial crisis and b) massive black voting turnout to vote for the first black president, a definitionally unrepeatable happening with c) actual permanent demographic change in the electorate.”
Let me get this straight: the Republicans are supposed to jettison social conservative support to go after college-educated voters in Connecticut, but do nothing to gain the support of Hispanics who are already socially conservative. Huh?? I suppose that’s what happens when the conclusion of any argument must be: oppose immigration reform and dump Sarah Palin.
Even the Left blogosphere fesses up: “By picking Palin, McCain re-energized the party and gave it a personality likely to remain popular for many years. ‘She’s one of the best campaigners I have ever seen and an important new voice in the struggle,’ for conservative principles, he said. Palin, who had flown to Phoenix with her husband, Todd, after casting her vote in Alaska in the morning, said not a word. She didn’t have to—her smile said it all: ‘I’ll be back.’”
