Heckuva post, Brownie!

Seriously, I’m glad you read the book so I don’t have to.

I am with you in thinking that Sarah Palin is an amazing political talent. That woman can deliver a speech as well as anybody out there. Personally, I thought her speeches were better and more powerful than Mr. Obama’s.

But I do fear that she lacks the necessary fire in the belly to wonkify herself.

I remember a speaker at the Philadelphia Society putting his finger on the greatness of Reagan and the duplicability of it. He read. He studied. He knew relevant facts. Combine those things with political talent and you can go very far.

We are still waiting for her to show that kind of determination.  I’m rooting for her.  I hope she will do it.
