Palin Still a Smash With the Media

palinstar

Many are overwhelming the office of Governor Sarah Palin with post-election interview requests.

Sarah has not even been in Alaska for a full day back to work and many small-time “journalists” are wanting interviews with her suddenly.  Interviewers like Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, and Larry King to name a few.

I don’t think she should deny requests for interviews, considering the fact that everyone is betting on her running in 2012, but if I were her, I’d take a break and let a few months of Obamagate unfold so she can start early with those adorable Alaskan-hockey mom “I told ya so” lines she’ll have prepared for them.

  1. “The one question not on your poll- should have been- should she take a seat in the senate? That would help prepare her further.”

    I politely disagree. She is better off terming out as Governor of Alaska. JFK was the last Senator to make it to the White House before Obama. The road to the Whtie House often does not pass through the U.S. Senate.

    Governors run a state. Senators make speeches. They don’t run things like a Governor does.

    Also, when you are a Governor, you can dispatch your party leaders to implement your agenda. You can get them to take the heat on controversial moves. This is why you have such people.

    When you are a Senator, you must compromise or nothing will get done. Those compromises come back to haunt you when you try to trade up. But, at the time they were the right move. Quid pro quo is how the Senate gets the work done.

  2. Well, I think both of you have a point. I agree with John that the executive experience as Governor will always be her strongest asset.

    However, she might be involved more heavily in national issues if she joined in Senate as well.

    Then, there’d be mayor, governor, and senator to her resume….

    Then in 2012, we can hear the critics tell us again that she’s not qualified.

    You make valid points Steve. If history is an indicator, then it is clear the going from The Senate to the White House is very hard.

    With our short attention span mentality, people remember what you are now versus what you once were. It would be Senator Palin running for President not Senator, former Governor, former Mayor Palin running for office.

    That’s my biggest worry with this.
