Glenn Beck Interview

I think the governor did a fantastic job and showed tremendous competence on oil and gas issues, which will likely dominate the election due to high gasoline prices. Now, I know she says that she would answer "no" to a VP nomination "if she had to make that decision today", but there are several reasons why I do not find this discouraging. For one, she seems to be indicating that she'd think about it before making a final decision; and secondly, she leaves open the idea that she might say "yes" if asked tomorrow.

At the moment, Governor Palin is trying to complete the process of licencing the construction of a natural gas pipeline by the TransCanada corporation. This would be the biggest development in Alaska since the oil pipeline, and Gov. Palin needs to stay in the governor's chair through the current special session of the legislature, which will decide whether to award the license to TransCanada or not. However, that session should be completed well before Sen. McCain selects a running mate, and the governor's situation will probably have changed significantly.

Almost every potential VP candidate is giving similar answers to the media right now, and you might have noticed that she did not answer the question of whether McCain's people had been in contact with her. Our movement will be continuing at full speed, and we are very hopeful that the governor will be able to answer "yes" to the VP question by the time she is actually asked.

Why I support Sarah Palin to be Vice Presidential nominee for the Republican Party.
As a fellow American, I'm writing to let you know of my support for SARAH PALIN to be the Vice Presidential nominee for the Republican Party. Gov. Palin would be an ideal choice. Sarah Palin's experience as Governor of Alaska makes Palin an extremely qualified candidate with Chief Executive experience. Governor Palin also provides instant conservative credentials. For instance, Governor Palin is staunchly pro-life and pro-marriage. In addition, as well as being a lifelong member of the National Rifle Association, and has long been a champion of the constitutional right to bear arms, on February 8, 2008, she announced the State of Alaska will join the multi-state amicus brief authored by the State of Texas in support of the Second Amendment right of individual Americans to bear arms. Governor Palin's popular appeal not only comes from the firmly held convictions that she shares with many other Americans, but also because of her warm, friendly, and engaging demeanor. Governor Palin has impeccable conservative credentials, which would tend to balance out McCain's somewhat more moderate and independent image. Governor Palin appeals to a wide range of voters in her home state. In fact, a recent poll shows that 80 percent of Alaskan voters rate your performance as excellent or good. I support SARAH PALIN to be the Vice Presidential nominee for the Republican Party. Thank you.

I think that the Jack Kelly piece appearing in RealClearPolitics is the best and most succinct, persuasive and well written one I've seen. It is important. Its appearing in RCP is important. It should be widely circulated and (I say with cautious optimism) should help pave the way for McCain selecting Gov Palin.

Here's what the Jindal Group says:

"Here at Conservative for Change we have been big advocates of the Bobby Jindal movement and that is not going to stop. While we would love to see Governor Jindal as Vice-President, we feel that he will be better suited in Louisiana and turning that state around before the national stage. Therefore, we are officially endorsing the movement to draft Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska for Vice-President of the United States."
