Sarah Returns to the Glenn Beck Program!
This may be two days old, but I wanted to comment on it and I didn't think it appropriate during the inauguration. Those Palinites who have been with the movement for a while will remember that one of Gov. Palin's first national interviews as a serious VP contender took place on CNN's Glenn Beck Program. She presented herself fantastically, Glenn loved her, and we were off to the races. Given the significance of that interview, I was thrilled to hear that Sarah would be the featured guest on the first edition of Beck's new show on Fox News.
Personally, I think this interview was almost as interesting as her first time on the program. Here's why: Sarah has practically trademarked her optimism and bubbly personality, but this was the first time I have seen her be genuinely forceful in her delivery. She's growing nicely into her role as a national figure, and if she can keep this up, I think she is well on her way to winning over many of the people who refused to take her seriously during her VP run. Of course, she needs to keep the bubbly, folksy persona that we all fell in love with - and I don't think we need to worry about that - but this attitude is a powerful new weapon in her rhetorical arsenal. She sounded confident, convincing, and perhaps even presidential.
Keep up the good work, Governor!
