She's not Hillary Clinton

But I wouldn't mind living next door to her. She's a hometown kind of person, your friend in her garden next door, the woman down the street you see at the grocery store on Saturday morning. I confess I kind of like her.

Palin

But at the moment, I am no more confident of her ability to assume the office of president than I am of my wonderful next door neighbor's ability to assume the office of president (or my own for that matter.)

Hillary was ready in every way to be president. However decent a person Sarah Palin is, she doesn't replace Hillary for me, and I don't need a consolation prize.

She seems like a pleasant enough person. She scares the crap out of me as a politician. It's like concentrating Pat Buchanan into a more potent conservative.

She is a game-changer. Specifically, she takes McCain's campaign from blackjack to craps. Instead of slowly losing money over the long haul (in the metaphor, voters or poll numbers), he decided for one really big roll of the dice. Rather than taking a long, slow loss, McCain took the words of my favorite crotchety old warhorse and said, "Sometimes you gotta roll a hard 6..."

I am hoping the game changer she is might prove a 15 point deficit in the polls.
