McCain to Leno: ‘I couldn’t be happier with Sarah Palin’ November 12, 2008 LOS ANGELES — In his first interview since conceding the election, John McCain said Tuesday that Sarah Palin did not damage his presidential bid, and he dismissed anonymous criticism aimed at her. ”I’m so proud of her, and I’m very grateful she agreed to run with me. She inspired people. She still does,” McCain told Jay Leno during a ”Tonight Show” Tuesday night. ”I couldn’t be happier with Sarah Palin.” Asked by Leno about griping about Palin from unidentified McCain operatives, he said, ”These things happen in campaigns. “I think I have at least a thousand, quote, top advisers,” he scoffed. Asked if Palin had drifted off message during the campaign, he responded, ”Did you expect mavericks to stay on message?” Meanwhile, in a series of national interviews Tuesday, Palin talked about the future and indirectly put her name in play as a possible future presidential candidate. When Mr. Leno asked Mr. McCain about a run in 2012, when he would be 76, he responded: “I wouldn’t think so, my friend. It’s been a great experience, and we’re going to have another generation of leaders, and I’ll hope I can continue to contribute.” AP http://www.suntimes.com/news/politics/mccain/1274594,CST-NWS-mccain12.article
False Smears. In addition to mounting criticism about pricey wardrobe purchases for her during the race, a recent Fox News Channel report cited unnamed campaign sources saying Palin did not know Africa was a continent and could not name the three countries that had signed the North American Free Trade Agreement. Palin has dismissed such criticism as false smears planted by “jerks” too cowardly to speak publicly. William McGurn, a former speech writer for President George W. Bush and editorialist for the Wall Street Journal, urged McCain in a newspaper column on Tuesday to condemn the attacks on Palin. Asked about them by Leno, McCain suggested such criticism amounted to sour grapes from people claiming to be campaign insiders. http://www.reuters.com/article/newsOne/idUSTRE4AB0MR20081112
John McCain’s former campaign manager Terry Nelson says that if Sarah Palin plans to run for president, she should follow Barack Obama’s example and seize on her momentum. Nelsons suggests she take a shot at the presidency in 2012. “Republicans are very interested in her, and some very excited by her,” Nelson told The Daily Beast. “I’d say strike when the iron is hot.” Nelson, who was the political director of the Bush-Cheney reelection campaign in 2004, served as McCain’s campaign manager until he was forced to resign in a staff shakeup last summer. While he says he is not (yet) plotting Palin’s ascension, he can see a clear path for her to take the Republican nomination in 2012.
Now why will she Sarah Plain not go away to the dismay of the too often ungodly liberals, democrats and why is it that she is still so popular?
Remember 49 percent of the Americans voted for John McCain .. and to a lot of Christians Sarah Plain still represents decent leadership..
