    I was going to comment, but all the other contributors appear to have old Sarah pegged for who/what she is... "All show and no go." As the quip says, "Where's the beef?" She opens her mouth and we instantly know THERE ISN'T ANY!!!

    Sarah Palin must be correct about a lot of things. After all, the press has gone after her with a vengence. Let's listen to her, uneditited, and not what is daid she said. John Hines

    We are so use to seeing governor Palin attacked personally. Its all they have, because her attackers can't respond to her on the issues. Wasilla hillbilly or stupid those attacks just don't mean anything anymore. If we had profiled, like she called for, we would not have seen the "underewear bomber".
    Now the big revelation is her calling Joe Biden, O'biden, even though she wrote about it. If Mr. Cooper had read her book, he would have know that.

    I am amused and not surprised at Palin's popularity. Ask a supporter what issues she stands for that they agree with and 90% won't know what to say because they don't know what she stands for, only that they like her.

    Ah, still trying to capture the limelight? She'll just never get it. She's just a dingbat, unlike me.

    Ron,
    You are a goose! This interview was not about you, but you made it that. Typical political approach. Blah, Blah, Blah. Talk about the subject and get off your self for a while. The American people don't need more of the same.

    It is easy to point out some of the liberals commenting on this blog, because they say things such as "white trash", "empty headed ", "she will also be popping out of a giant box of tea dressed entirely in bullet-riddled wolf skins".... They cannot offer constructive comments.

    I personally do not think that Palin would be elected president, she would not stand a chance. However, Voltaire was the one who said something along the lines of "I may not agree with a word you say, but I defend to the death your right to say it". Let her speak. I thought Liberals owned the first amendment.

    God help us all...if she was ever elected president. it would say a lot about our culture and how shallow politics and our society has become.

    There are many reasons we are in "trouble" as a nation. And the fact that people would actually vote for this lady is a big reason.

    Obama , has a job of trying to fix the mess the republicans left this coutnry in when they were driven from office last Nov. Now we have this Alaska, hillbilly, wanabe who knows nothing about the needs of the 48 states of the continental US. If you think she does then you are just as bad! No, she is the worst!

    Well said Another Scott. Those who bash Palin should read her book, but then again this is the same group of people who DIDN'T READ BO'S BOOK YET VOTED FOR HIM. TALK ABOUT UNIFORMED

    More ridiculous teabagger nonsense.

    Please, please stop wasting our time about the absurd and irrelevant Palin.

    Mrs. $arah Show-Me-The-Money Palin strikes again. Gawd this gold digger is so transparent; and her followers are so gullible.

    Does CNN still try to claim some sort of un-biasedness? I could get more complete news in China.

    I am not surprised by the venom being spewed out towards Sarah Palen on this site. Its seems clear to me that she is a political force and a potent symbol within Conservative circles which engenders tremendous fear on the left. President Obama is certainly an intellectual and he is a committed socialist. Let's not pretend he isn't. The preponderance of the American people clearly do not identify with the left. The elections in 2010 and 2012 will certainly reverse the mistake the American people made in electing Mr. Obama. Sarah Palin will be there celebrating the return to normalcy because she is more in tune with the cultural and political norms than President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.

    Power and money might go hand in hand, but if you have only BRAWN, and NO BRAINS, it really matters not! Sara could be compared to Goliath, since she is so focused on Christianity and God! In the future, a very intelligent "David" will come along with his/or her slingshot, and BINGO, down Sara Palin will go! And MANY of us will just smile and say BYE, BYE, SARA!! You need to get back to Alaska, and dust off those binoculars you used way back in 2008, to see "Russia" from your house!! And while you are there, take a walk on the "Bridge to Knowwhere", get yourself a publisher and write another book so you can recoup some of and/or ALL of the money you lost in the 2012 election!!!

    Ron Paul is very much a student of American political history.

    I am amazed anyone would even listen to this person. She is by far the worst wannabe that has come along in a while. She is being marketed and put up by the people in the background. If she ever runs and makes it I will move out if this country. It is my prahyer people will be wiser and not give her the time of day anymore. She should be spending time with her special need child instead. As for her book someone wrote it for her and I wouldn't use the pages to light a fire. I truly fear for the american people as I am hoping they are not as stupid as she is.
    How can the president fix an 8 year mess in 1 year? And the people who are against health care have some kind of insurance. We have lost ours and can't pay for Cobra. I cant wait to get Health insurance. Please look at other countries and see they are all providing health insurance to their people. Yes it cost money but in the long run we will save money. I wish CNN would stop reporting on the dumb woman from Alaska who thinks she can see Russia from there. Plus she is a quitter..................

    The left wing is scared to death of Sarah Palin. They should be because she will soon lead the defeat of them!

    Facts just don't seem to matter to the little Hate Spewers on this site. I've read some amazing things in these comments. Obama is a Constitutional Scholar ?! Yet a lot of real Constitutional Scholars say he knows nothing about it. If he does, it's how to get around it to break contracts, nationalize the econmy, get you all beholden to Big Government, remove your Liberties. You'd all be best served to read "Another Scott" comments. He has it dead on. And sit down and actually read the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Tell me where the Federal Government has a right to force us to buy Health Insurance, and FINE and JAIL us if we don't? What happened to Habeus Corpus, Right to fair trial by peers, and Right of Property?

    Incredible! Every time Sarah Palin is mentioned, the comment numbers shoot up. Just look at the numbers on this minor item. The libs hate her – and that's great! It will be a thrill beyond imagination when this American heroine triumphs and becomes the leader this nation needs at its lowest ebb in history. Go Sarah! You betcha!

    The only thing Palin can do for anyone is to teach moose shooting. The moose understand her speech, I don't.

    Paul H @ 3:28 writes: "For those that are making anti Palin comments just for the sake of putting her down, why don't you find the fact's on why she's not going to CPAC."

    Well Paul I suggest you take your own advice. When even The American Spectator–a far right magazine–calls $arah petty and a diva for not attending CPAC, you know $arah's screwing up as usual.

    I thought this was a political gathering. With Sarah Palin headlining they now have the ringmaster they need for their first ever circus performance.
