How long can McCain get away with a bump in the polls due to a vice presidiential pick who is not ready for prime time? AP reports the latest:
an aide told the journalists on board that all Palin flights would be off the record unless the media were told otherwise. At least one reporter objected. Two people on the flight said the Palins greeted the media and they chatted about who had been to Alaska, but little else was said.
They compared Palin with Joe Biden:
By comparison, her Democratic counterpart, Joe Biden, has been campaigning on his own for weeks, at times taking questions from audiences. He was interviewed on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday.
His campaign appearances have touched on a range of issues – in Florida he talked about U.S. support for Israel, in Pennsylvania it was economics and tax policy.
How long will it take the voters to figure out that there is a reason for the differences in how the two vice presidential candidates are dealing with the press?
