On ABC’s This Week, Cokie Roberts showed that she “gets it” better than most of the media. While she didn’t gush in support, she did indicate that the Democrats better be very careful in how they react to the choice and that the pick could well be a good one.
She addressed some of the snarky comments that suggest Mrs. Palin can’t be a good mother AND run for Vice President. Roberts stated that that sort of attack on Mrs. Palin could make women “really angry”. Roberts also suggested that Mrs. Palin could well help bring some of Hillary Clinton’s “blue collar supporters” over to John McCain.
George Will eloquently defended the choice. Matthew Dowd was balanced in his comments. Sam Donaldson surprised no one by acting the buffoon and spraying spittle far and wide.
