    The only problem with this is that the wrong man is in the position to step up.
    I have difficulty understanding how a war criminal and torture supporter could have any credibility in USA National discourse. It's a sad day when a promoter of such evils has a National voice and peoples pretend she is sane. Unbelievable.

    I rspect Dr. Rice. I wonder how a GOP primary challenge would go comprared to Mrs Palin...Mano a mano. A Dr. Rice vs Mrs. Palin debate would be priceless.

    Come on. Your girl started spouting fragmented, incoherent, canned responses. If she didn't know, she should have attacked Katie Couric for asking that type of thing in the first place. That's the kind of thing you just do when it's from the heart. When you have it deep down inside. But she was just scared, because she knew she was being exposed as being out of her league. Sorry.

    I don't know why there is a concern, I doubt Palin will run.

    That's a good point. However, I would say in her defense that Cheney and Rumsfeld had more sway over Bush at that point, and that she was just happy to be there along for the ride at that point. It was after it became apparent Iraq was a bad idea that she started to have more influence over Bush when Cheney fell out of favor.

    But on the other hand, she was associated with it and did not speak out against it, so I think your point is valid.

    I guess it depends on how the information was presented to her. Do you think she didn't believe she was going the right thing? Frankly I don't know. Torture in and of itself seems wrong, but put in context with saving lots of lives can seems different. The other thing was they was arguing over what constituted torture for a long time. Weighing the Geneva Convention against other legal concerns, I don't know.

    You must not remember her public comments on aluminum tubes and mushroom clouds.
