A poor job of preparation blunts Palin’s ability to save the McCain campaign
The job of preparing Sarah Palin to face the media was done poorly. The campaign held off the press for several weeks. This gave the Governor a chance to cram for her debut but it also let the press set an ambush. I don’t know what was done in the period between Sarah Palin’s introduction to the country at the Republican convention and her first interview but it was not effective. Mrs. Palin didn’t let her inner bulldog out. Instead, the press went on an offensive to prove she is not qualified for the office she is seeking.
