Her first interview, with the ABC News anchor Charles Gibson, was too hard. The second, with Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel, was too soft. The third, however, did not turn out to be just right for Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.
On the CBS Evening News on Thursday, Katie Couric asked Ms. Palin, Senator John McCain?s running mate, what she meant when she cited Alaska?s proximity to Russia as foreign affairs experience. Ms. Palin could have anticipated the question ? the topic of their interview, pegged to her visit to the United Nations, was foreign affairs. Yet Ms. Palin?s answer was surprisingly wobbly: her words tumbled out fast and choppily, like an outboard motor loosened from the stern.
And when you are done watching that one, there is always this one. 🙂
