Sarah Palin Out
Sarah Palin, like Chris Christie, has decided not to run for President. Looking back at my comments on Palin over the past eleven months, I seem to have vacillated between defending her from unfair attacks by the left-liberal media and arguing that she lacks the experience and gravitas to be President. I also always thought that she would decide that not running for President allowed her to have more influence than running and losing, as she inevitably would; that it allowed her to maintain her family's privacy (at least a modicum of privacy... she's still a media figure, after all); and, most of all, maintain her ability to make a lot of money. I only wish she had made the decision months ago; she's been a bit of distraction from the real candidates.
