George Will: Palin’s ‘Non-Presidential’ TV Appearances Will Not Lead to the WH
????????Sarah Palin can been seen all over television this week – from the debut of TLC’s “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” to her daughter’s controversial appearance in the finale of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” – but can Americans see her in the White House in 2012? George Will says no.
“The independent voters have made up their minds about her, and it is a negative judgment they’ve made,” ABC’s George Will said on the “This Week” roundtable.
In an interview with Barbara Walters that airs December 9th, Sarah Palin stated her belief that she could defeat President Obama if she chose to run for president in 2012. According to George Will, however, she has yet to accomplish what voters need to view her as a serious political figure.
“After the 2008 campaign she had two things she had to do: she had to go home to Alaska and study, and she had to govern Alaska well,” Will told “This Week” anchor Christiane Amanpour. “Instead she quit halfway through her first term and shows up in the audience of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and other distinctly non-presidential venues.”
