Sarah Palin is breaking the interview silence and has agreed to a sit down interivew with “Charles Gibson of ABC’s “World News Tonight,” according to an ABC News official.”
No other interviews are scheduled. It will be the first TV interview for Palin since she was named 10 days ago as running mate to John McCain.
Palin had planned to return to Alaska this weekend but is so popular on the stump that she is going to stay out a few more days before returning home. One of her sons deploys to Iraq on Thursday.
Palin plans to sit down with Gibson later this week in Alaska, the source said.
The McCain is wising up to the fact that voters “see her reticence was feeding the narrative of her being unprepared for the job.”
Well she is un-prepared for the job… There is no doubt about that.
Today, Barack Obama’s running mate, Senator Joe Biden of Delaware, challenged her “to submit to network questioning.”
“She’s a smart, tough politician,” Biden told Tom Brokaw in a “Meet the Press” interview live from Wilmington, Del. “So I think she’s going to be formidable. Eventually, she’s going to have to sit in front of you like I’m doing and have done. Eventually, she’s going to have to answer questions and not be sequestered. Eventually, she’s going to have to answer on the record.”
Let’s get on with the show Sarah… The voters and the American public have right to know where you stand on issues and how you handle yourself under the pressure of interviews with the media.
