Sarah Palin visits with Afghanistan’s Karzai—and that’s all we know
It appears there remains a concern that in the McCain-Palin campaign that Sarah Palin can’t handle pressure commonly felt by politicians. This was exhibited today when she met with world leaders in New York, and reporters were barred from her conversation with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
I heard about this on NPR a little while ago; here’s the word from the MoJo blog:
You’d think this is something the McCain campaign would be excited to broadcast to the world, right? You tell me. They let the press observe a meeting between Palin and Afghan President Hamid Karzai for 29 seconds. The press then got 15-20 seconds of a meeting between Palin and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe. Hmm.
Oh, hey, just FYI? This person might be elected vice president of the United States in less than six weeks.
