She may be ready to step in as president if need be, but the McCain camp says Sarah Palin isn’t ready for prime time or interviews with the media:
A senior McCain campaign official advises that, despite the gaggle of requests and pressure from the media, Gov. Sarah Palin won’t submit to a formal interview anytime soon. She may take some questions from local news entities in Alaska, but until she’s ready — and until she’s comfortable — which might not be for a long while — the media will have to wait. The campaign believes it can effectively deal with the media’s complaints, and their on-the-record response to all this will be: “Sarah Palin needs to spend time with the voters.”
Not out of the question are appearances on lighter, fluffier television shows. But — not for a while.
Is it just me or is something terribly wrong with this picture. If the McCain camp says she’s not ready to talk to the media, than they are lacking confidence in her and if they are lacking confidence in her, she has no business being his VP. WTF?
I’m wondering if she’ll be ready to debate Biden when the time comes… Or does the McCain camp just think they can keep her under wraps under the election is over?
Oh and as for any of the “fluffier television shows” — Oprah isn’t chomping at the bit to host Sarah Pain anytime soon. Stay tuned… Or don’t if you want to watch any Sarah Palin interviews… There won’t be any. Apparently one speech is enough.
