As many of you who read this site know, the menu on here is often California news. From time to time, we look at national and world events.
This Thursday evening will be a defining moment in the race for The White House. Will Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin give a performance like her speech at the Republican Convention last month or will she give a performance like her recent interview with CBS' Katie Couric?
We've been amazed at the scrutiny Palin has been under. Now while we would like to see her do more interviews, etc. even the smallest of gaffes are pointed out. Maybe Couric brings out the gaffes and confusion in politicians?
It was not that long ago when Democratic VP nominee Joe Biden informed Couric that FDR went on television to reassure the nation during the stock market crash in 1929. Two problems with that scenario. Herbert Hoover was president at the time, and, oh, television was not around yet. Funny how that item has gotten so little play on places like MSNBC, NBC, and liberal leaning publications and talk shows.
Palin just needs to come off Thursday night as compitent and assure the public that she could step in for John McCain if needed in a McCain-Palin administration.
If she does well, we've got ourselves a race. If not, be prepared for Obama and Biden to roll into the White House next Janaury. If that's the case, we could be looking at another Jimmy Carter. And we all know how that turned out for the country....
