She doesn’t have the quitter gene:
Palin said the decision to pull out of Michigan, which was announced Thursday, was “not a surprise” to her since polls show McCain slipping in the state.
But Palin said that when she read the news, she “fired off a quick e-mail and said, ‘Oh come on, do we have to?'”
“Todd and I, we’d be happy to get to Michigan …We’d be so happy to speak to the people there in Michigan who are hurting,” she said. “Whatever Todd and I can do in realizing what their challenges in that state are …. I wanna get back to Michigan and I want to try.”
Her willingness to speak her own mind is admirable. I will repeat that I have always said it was a mistake to try to shield her from the press. She’s got better political instincts than her handlers do.
