Sarah Palin, who is now a pundit for Fox News, says she will work to help get Senator McCain re-elected. She says, “I’m looking forward to getting back on the campaign trail with my former running mate.” McCain says, “I know my fellow Arizonans will welcome her as well.”
My question is the two have been slamming one another’s campaigns since their loss in 2008, and now, they are best of friends. It may be that it’s a scenario similar to the one where Obama may have hurt Coakley more than helped, and now, each camp is blaming the other.
People are sick of politicians, and last I looked Palin, Obama, McCain, and Coakley are all politicians. It remains to be seen if Sarah Palin will be an asset to John McCain or if some other Republican will throw their hat in the ring against McCain, and then, where will Sarah Palin stand?
McCain has no announced challenger yet for the Republican nomination but conservative radio talk show host J.D. Hayworth has talked of possibly challenging the Vietnam war hero.
Palin is now a star of the Republican Party and a big draw on the fund-raising circuit. She is a Fox News contributor.
