I doubted that Sarah Palin was electable as US president, even if she won the Republican nomination.
I have changed my mind.
She could do the job. The democrat/liberal claim she is stupid is based on nothing but fear of a formidable opponent.
Anyone who thinks she lacks intellect or education has not listened to her speak on key issues, or read her articles.
She has experience of life and of opposition and intimidation, and has faced even the most revolting comments about her and her family with grace and generosity.
Just as importantly, she has experience in actually running things – something the present incumbent lacks – and she seems to have an awareness of, and an ability to think clearly about, key world and domestic issues.
What I thought made her unelectable was the sheer magnitude of the campaign against her. She has been so thoroughly vilified in the media that everyone’s opinions of her have been touched to some extent by constant misrepresentations and accusations.
What has changed my mind is Steve Bannon’s film ‘Undefeated.’
It portrays Sarah as a woman of intelligence, integrity and courage, and it shows how these things enabled her to be extraordinarily effective as Governor of Alaska. Her care for ordinary people and determination to do what is right shine through the film.
I hope she will run, but whatever she decides, God bless her and her family.
