This is from a couple of weeks ago, but I thought it was so unimportant that I had to comment on it. John McCain declined to endorse Sarah Palin for president in 2012. Yawn.
You mean that McCain doesn't want to endorse a candidate more than 1,400 days before the election and 1,100 days or so before the Iowa Caucuses? This is supposed to be some sort of affront to Sarah Palin?
But, I did find the second part of McCain's comments interesting. From McClatchy:
"Listen, I have the greatest appreciation for Governor Palin and her family, and it was a great joy to know them. She invigorated our campaign. She was just down in Georgia and invigorated their campaign.
"But I can't say something like that. We've got some great other young governors. I think you're going to see the governors assume a greater leadership role in our Republican Party."
If anyone was slighted by McCain, it wasn't Palin, but rather his fellow Republican members of the "World's Greatest Deliberative Body." But really, is there anyone who doesn't think a governor or former governor will be the G.O.P.'s 2012 nominee?
