As "same" already noted, Palin was the only smart thing McCain did. I am not saying Palin would make a great candidate for president, I personally don't think she would - yet. But I respect her. Why else does the Left go after her so mercilessly - they're afraid of her. She articulates her positions well and she walks the talk. She carried her baby even after being told he would have Down's Syndrome - and the Left HATED THAT. A "journalist" moves in NEXT DOOR in order to try and get dirt on her. They bring up HER HUSBAND'S DUI from when he was 21 - seriously. THAT was the best they could do. She was finally driven to resign because the constant attacks and FOI requests were making it impossible for her to function as governor and were costing both her personally and the taxpayers of Alaska.<quoted text>
Explain the intelligence behind the love of Sarah Palin?? I won't bore you with the long list of reasons she was one of the main reasons Obama got elected in the first place.
At the 2008 convention, the teleprompter failed and was running behind to the point that her speech was basically a mix of memory and extemporaneous speaking and she was flawless- we've seen what happens when our supposedly brilliant president's teleprompter goes on the fritz or when he is speaking "off script" - umm, uh, uh, umm.....
She's a strong woman who articulates conservative values - and that's why she's a target and why the Left is intent on doing everything they can to label her as stupid - fat chance.
