TV journalists have been striking the Sarah Palin iron while it's hot. Last night FOX News aired Palin's first postelection interview, after Greta van Susteren traveled to Alaska to debrief with Palin. And this morning, Sarah's chat with Matt Lauer aired on the Today show.
Speaking with Greta, Palin indicated that she would leave the decision to run for president in 2012 up to God. She said:
Faith is a very big part of my life. And putting my life in my creator's hands — this is what I always do. I'm like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I'm like, don't let me miss the open door. . . . And if there is an open door in (20)12 or four years later, and if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I'll plow through that door.
And regardless of her propositions for 2012, Palin believes the 2008 campaign trail wrapped up without any bitter loose ends. She told Matt Lauer this morning that: “I have nothing but honor and admiration and love for him and for his family. And I think that that is mutual. In fact, I talked to him just today, again — and [we’re] touching base nearly every day."
Now that the election is one week behind us, do you think we can put Sarah Palin behind, or has her time in the spotlight just begun?
