There is a lot of talk about Gov. Sarah Palin being very inexperienced and Quayle-like. Well I'm here to tell you that she is a major threat for our victory in November. Why? Let's go back to the 2000 Senate race between then First Lady Hillary Clinton and Rep. Rick Lazio. During one of the debates Lazio went on the attack against Hillary and played very rough. What was the effect of the debate? Well the public saw Lazio as too hard on Hillary and was painted as a bully.
Then their is that memorable debate between Hillary and Obama and Edwards after Iowa and before New Hampshire. Obama and Edwards ganged up on Hillary and kept attacking her. What was the affect? After being down by double digits in every single poll Hillary ended up winning New Hampshire by five points. Why? Because women stood behind her and said the media and Obama/Edwards were unfair.
My conclusion is that Joe Biden who is a GREAT debater can no longer go on the attack like we wanted him to. If he did then he would be painted as too tough on women and as a result undecided women might rally behind Palin. I once thought that this election was going to be a FDR like landslide for us, but as each day passes it looks like that scenario is sleeping away.
