This country is not a center right country no matter how many times you guys try to claim it. It is more to the center than to the right or left. As for Sarah Palin it just solidifies their position of partisanship. Palin will get softball questions and free airtime while she prepares for her run for president.
Obama has similar ratings that Reagan had in his first year. Its usual for presidents to have low ratings in the first year. We'll just have to wait and see what the next 3 years bring. Theres really nothing you can do about it.
