    No I'm seeing the crowds she's drawing. She has a huge fan base, there is no denying that. Regardless of what her justification was for quitting as governor it will be used as a line of attack and I predict it will be rather effective.

    She was definitely picked more for political strategy than credentials imho.

    But then again, so was Biden.

    McCain needed a young, fresh, exciting candidate, preferably a minority or woman, to counter many of the negatives of his campaign/positives of Obama's.

    Obama needed an experienced, more populist, preferably white male, to counter many of the negatives of his campaign/positives of Obama's.

    I think people on both sides are fooling themselves if they think the primary reason either of the VP candidates were picked was simply credentials.

    Monday's episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" drew a 8.7 household rating and 13 share -- the best since Winfrey had the entire Osmond family on the show in 2007.
    Are you telling us that the Messiah couldn't draw more numbers than the Osmonds?

    Well, in Alaska she was still relatively unknown. If you are running for a high office you had better prepare for some serious criticism and scrutiny. I don't think she was at all prepared for that. It's also not just liberals who have been attacking her. Plenty of people on the right have been doing so as well. Many accused her as being part of the reason why the GOP was so split apart during the last Presidential campaign.

    "The Messiah" isn't nearly as polarizing as Sarah Palin is. Plus, Palin at one time believed she was being snubbed by Oprah. I'm sure people tuned in expecting to see some sort of drama related to that as well.

    Must be the Messiah's the idiot.

    Palin believes the US should exploit it's own vast energy resources, not import oil from terrorist and totalitarian nations.

    Must be the Messiah's the idiot.

    Palin wouldn't bow to the king of Saudi Arabia or the Emperor of Japan.

    Must be the Messiah's the idiot.

    And the people that support the Messiah and his policies, of course.

    I would agree if the scrutiny and criticism were legitimate. But the vitriol began out of the gate. One of the first nasty little stories started was about how Trigg was really Bristol's baby. And it only sunk lower from there.

    I don't think she was at all prepared for that.
    I don't think many of us were prepared for the maniacal venom that was thrown at that woman.

    Well it was. And they can blame all they want. Looking at the campaign, there was an obvious flaw in running her with McCain and that flaw was miscalculated as a strength by the campaign. McCain and Palin were both maverick politicians with different ideologies. They could not present a unified and coherent message because they were divided.

    And that's ok, too. That's water under the bridge now.

    It rarely is legitimate, though. The average person doesn't care about policy issues. They like to see sensationalism and drama and the news networks like to keep their ratings up. Unfortunately, I don't see how this method will change. In fact, it will probably only get worse.

    I don't think many of us were prepared for the maniacal venom that was thrown at that woman.
    I didn't think they would go as hard as they did against her, but it really didn't surprise me. Not much surprises me about the media nowadays.

    Agreed. It may come back to haunt her. The lows that the media have sunk to in their attacks of her will most definitely come back to haunt her as well. They've created a huge well for her opponents to take from for attack material.

    Which fails to address the growing deficit in hospitals as a result of patients not paying their bills, which in turn raises treatment costs for everyone.

    The U.S. gets 90% of its oil from Canada. This is a moot point.

    This has nothing to do with anything pertinent.

    I support some of Obama's policies. I'm not sure what Messiah you are talking about.

    I think her best bet is to wait through to 2016, continue doing speaking tours, solidify a base for herself, and hope to god Tina Fey out ages her or gets hit by a bus.
