Least Shocking Assertion of the Day
Memeorandum is abuzz with the following ABC story: Sarah Palin Says She Could Beat Obama (indeed, it is sufficiently big news that the BBC went all international on the story: Palin says she could beat Obama).
The startling revelation comes from an interview with Barbara Walters:
Asked Walters: "If you ran for president, could you beat Barack Obama?"
"I believe so," Palin said.
And did anyone expect her to say anything other than that? Since it is pretty obvious that she is considering a run doesn’t that, by definition, mean that she thinks she has a shot at winning?
