Palin’s (Lack of) Substance
It’s hard to see Sarah Palin’s resignation as a good move for her politically. Yes, she may now have time to study up and to do fund raising for other Republicans. But it would be nice to run on a full record of accomplishment, to add some substance to her undeniable style.
And wasn’t one of the key criticisms of Barack Obama the fact that he hadn’t actually accomplished anything? If she somehow ends up running against him in 2012, it is he who will have the edge in experience-and don’t think he won’t trumpet this to the voters.
