Palin Wows 'Em in York

It's easy to make fun of a vice presidential candidate who can't seem to tell you what periodicals she reads, what Supreme Court cases she disagrees with, or who thinks the First Amendment to the Constitution assures her the right to not be criticized. But today, after seeing Sarah Palin address a rally in famously conservative York, Pennsylvania, I'm not laughing.

Palin was completely impressive, even when calling Obama a socialist.

At the end of the event, she spent at least a half hour shaking hands, walking the rope line. I asked her whether she'd be running for president in 2012. She smiled sweetly and said, "I'll be campaigning for John McCain John McCain's re-election in 2012."

NOTE: I corrected Palin's quote upon review of the audio file.
