X2.

Ever try being interviewed on TV? Even as an accident witness? A TV camera can be unnerving.

Can't speak to her intelligence or her experience other than she's not quite comfortable on the national stage yet.

Interesting the things they choose to leave out. Maybe her better answers?
Here are the missing pieces of the transcript:

Couric: What, specifically, in your view, could be done to convince the new government in Pakistan to take a harder, tougher line against terrorists in that country?

Palin: At a time when new leadership comes in, that is the opportunity to forge better, tighter, more productive relationships and that’s what we’ll take advantage of with new leadership in the US and in Pakistan. And I’m sure that President Zardari, too, will agree with us as we commit to the support that Pakistan needs, that other nations in the region need, in order to win this war on terrorism. (3:32)


(5:39) Couric: But what lessons do you think you have learned as you’ve watched this unfold in terms of implementing the democracy and the challenges inherent in that goal?

Palin: Well, one is that America cannot be counted on to do this solely, to be the savior of every other nation, but we need friends and we need allies and we need this nation-building effort and we need to forge new alliances, and that is what a new election will provide opportunity to do.

Couric: What happened if the goal of democracy, Governor Palin, doesn’t produce the desired outcome, for example in Gaza, the US pushed hard for elections and Hamas won.

Palin: Especially in that region, though, we have got to protect those and support those who do seek democracy and do seek protections for the people who live there. And you know, we’re seeing today, in the last couple of days here in New York, a speaker, a President of Iran, Ahmadinejad, who would come on our soil and express such disdain for one of our closest allies and friends—Israel—and we’re hearing the evil that he speaks. And if hearing him doesn’t allow Americans to commit more solidly to protecting the friends and allies that we need, expecially there in the Mideast, then nothing will.

If Americans are not waking up to understand what it is that he represents, then nothing is going to wake us up and we will be lulled into some kind of false sense of security that perhaps Americans were a part of before 9/11.(7:25)
What do each of these three Palin answers have in common? They portray her as a foreign policy moderate who seeks multilateral coalitions with allies and who advocates for human rights, caring about better lives for Middle Easterners.

Remember after the last debate Kissinger was contacted about meeting with Irans Am-gonna-getta-job? And confirmed Nobama was wrong.

Another excerpt:


Couric: You met yesterday with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who is for direct diplomacy with both Iran and Syria. Do you believe the U.S. should negotiate with leaders like President Assad and Ahmadinejad?
Palin:
I think, with Ahmadinejad, personally, he is not one to negotiate with. You can’t just sit down with him with no preconditions being met. Barack Obama is so off-base in his proclamation that he would meet with some of these leaders around our world who would seek to destroy America and that, and without preconditions being met. That’s beyond naïve. And it’s beyond bad judgment.
Couric: Are you saying Henry Kissinger …
Palin:
It’s dangerous.
Couric: … is naïve for supporting that?
Palin:
I’ve never heard Henry Kissinger say, “Yeah, I’ll meet with these leaders without preconditions being met.” Diplomacy is about doing a lot of background work first and shoring up allies and positions and figuring out what sanctions perhaps could be implemented if things weren’t gonna go right. That’s part of diplomacy.

Yeah but don't you get it, THE MEDIA say's she's an idiot so it must be true.

I saw a report the other day that was suppose to be about Palin and Biden and the up comming debate.

The report consisted of Biden air time, Obama air time, Mrs Obama air time, Mrs Biden air time, and the reporter saying, oh yeah the Palins have a son in the military also.

The entire media supports Obama, this is no secret. So of course they're going to edit and spin things just like politicians to support their views and never show the complete story.

The candidate story before the first interview was a biography on obama, his childhood, his upbringing, all the people with lovely things to say about him. The mccain story consisted of diane sawyer arguing with him accusing that he grew up in a rich family, then 2 minutes about his time as a POW. Disgusting

She was picked too early and brought onto the national stage before she was ready. It will be what about 6 weeks between her being picked and the election.

That is why she sounds like an idiot... Or Dan Quayle with a Pony Tail.

Given time, like another 4-8 years she can/could have a real chance for VP or even Prez
if this does not damage her politically like it did Dan Quayle.

So, let me get this straight. They (media) are giving Palin a hard time about foreign policy and as VP she's not going to be the one who sets the policy for the administration? On the other hand we have a man who has repeatedly shown, through his absurd comments about attacking our allies (Pakistan) and talking about sitting down and "smoking a peace pipe" with our enemies that he has no grasp on foreign policy, and he wants to be our President?

she was picked to early even though she has more experince than the entire democratic ticket. also how does it look when the media supports some one thats advocating change even though change is not in the medias best intrest.
of course there going to make mcain palin ticket look like a joke because they dont want him winning.

i think she is ready since she is one of the only canadaties that has experince int the executive branch and if im not mistaken she is trying to be elected into the excutive branch.

i wonder what is the real reason the democrates would put sombody up with so little experince could it be because they want to control him. When he needs help he will ask his party and he is going to need alot of help. and when he fails as a president they will say well he really didnt have that much experince anyways . im sorry his entire campaing smells fishy.

So - other than daring to criticize a popular TV show with a popular outspoken 60s liberal star thereby inciting the media against him, and misspelling "potato" in a sound bite - did Qualyle do that made him an "idiot"? Name one.

Quayle is a perfect example of the media manipulating images and access to information to burn a politican they don't like - something they have a long history of doing.
