Palin Talks 2012
Yesterday Sarah Palin shocked her own handlers when she said that she was already thinking about her 2012 campaign.
CNN's Dana Bash told cohort Wolf Blitzer that a senior McCain advisor was rendered "speechless" by Palin's comment. "There was a long pause, and then I just heard a 'Huh.' on the other end of the phone. I mean, this is certainly not a surprise to anybody who has watched Sarah Palin that she is interested in potentially...a future national run. Certainly she is being urged to by a lot of people inside the Republican Party if they do lose." Gov. Palin has already been called a "diva" and "rogue" by people within the McCain campaign who see her straying from prescribed narrative in her speeches, having "lost confidence in most of the people on the plane."It's rather unprecedented for someone in Palin's position to make the slightest acknowledgment of a potential loss at this stage of the campaign.
