I find it fascinating how people can see entirely different people in the same candidates, depending on whom they support. Sarah Palin, of course, is the ultimate example. During her interview on CBS News, Katie Couric asked Palin what newspapers she reads. She couldn't clearly answer:
Palin's answer, to me, seems nothing short of bizarre. It's really a simple question. One or two titles would have sufficed. She couldn't - or wouldn't answer.
Others have complained that the media is engaged in a hatchet job on Palin - it's hard to see how such a "soft" question could be construed as confrontative or even manipulative.
Palin did better than expected during the Vice Presidential Debate with Joe Biden - but that's a situation that reflects, for both candidates, a week or longer of cramming for the big night.
It's the little things that count.
