Please, folks, don’t turn this into a Palin-bashing thread – this is an honest question!
Sarah Palin spent the weekend here in Philly – actually, she spent four or five days here. Hard to be sure, because she didn’t actually make any public appearances as such – she went jogging by the Schuylkill River one afternoon, and had coffee with three or four other mothers of soldiers currently deployed in Iraq yesterday. Oh, and there was a small gathering of supporters at the Irish Pub on Friday night.
Here’s my question – we’re about five weeks out from the election. Both presidential candidates are campaigning pretty actively, as are their wives. The Democratic VP candidate, Joe Biden, is also making a lot of public appearances before large crowds. All of these people have the press following them pretty closely.
Sarah Palin spent the weekend in Philadelphia, pretty much in seclusion.
What does this say to you as a McCain supporter? Does it have an effect on your support for the Republican nominees?
Again, Dems, pls. don’t light the torches here. I’m genuinely curious to know how supporters of the Republican ticket interpret Palin’s low profile.
