Mark Halperin has a feature in Time magazine every week called “The Big Questions.”
For a process-obsessed campaign reporter, this means a weekly who’s up, who’s down scorecard, in an easy to followQ-&-A format.
This week’s questions:
Is Sarah Palin in or out?
What could hold her back?
When does she have to decide?
Part of his answer to question one: “Palin remains more interesting to listen to than any other candidate.” Coming from a guy who once said, “I’m ready to cancel my vacation to go cover Rick Perry,” maybe this isn’t surprising. It is worth pointing out that Sarah Palin isn’t, you know, a candidate for anything.
After praising her “maverick appeal” and “pox-on-both-parties, anti-Establishment message,” Halperin notes that “as always, the media can’t get enough of her.”
Well, he’s right about that.
