Sarah Palin On Why Obama Won: “I Wasn’t At The Top Of The Ticket, Remember?”
Showing little gratitude for John McCain, without whom Sarah Palin would still be in Alaska as a little-known, or former, governor, Sarah Palin told India Today that the reason Republicans lost was that she didn’t head the ticket. She attributed Obama’s win to being the change candidate.
Pressed by India Today editor Aroon Purie that she also represented change, Palin replied, “I wasn’t at the top of the ticket, remember?”
The 2008 vice presidential nominee said she was not claiming she should have been the nominee over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), but her comments provide a glimpse of her potential appeal to voters should she choose to run for the nomination in 2012.
Palin reiterated that she has not yet decided is she will run.
“I don’t think that there needs to be a rush still to get out there as a declared candidate,” she said.
Yes, Palin didn’t say she should have been at the top of the ticket, only that, had she been, there would have been a better chance of winning.Click here for reuse options!
