Krauthammer on Palin
Charles Krauthammer is getting a lot of attention for his observation on Fox’ Special Report that Sarah Palin “is not a serious candidate for the presidency.”
As regular readers know, I think he’s right on this score:
She had to go home and study and spend a lot of time on issues in which she was not adept last year, and she hasn’t. She has to stop speaking in clichés and platitudes. It won’t work. It could work for eight weeks if you’re the number two candidate, as she was last year. But even so, she got singed a lot in that campaign.
But I have to seriously question his observational skills for his next sentence:
You cannot sustain a campaign of platitudes and clichés over a year and a half if you’re running for the presidency.
Yes. You. Can.
