    I expected more from her. This was a singularly unimpressive interview that explains why the McCain campaign is shielding her from the press. But the curtain is slowly being pulled aside and the Wizard of Oz exposed as the nonentity that he is.

    This is what she looked like when Katie asked her that last question.

    The more she talks unscripted...the more I see why McCain's hiding her.

    She's a joke.

    Honestly, that's probably the best answer to that question in the circumstances, because McCain probably hasn't been pushing for a ton of regulation over the years... nor should he have.

    But given the climate, she can't just say that. So what should she do? Lie? Make something up (ala Biden)?

    Funny, I didn't see Couric pounding Biden with follow-ups like that when he claimed FDR was President during the crash of 1929.

    Nobody's going to care about Biden's innocent screw up, compared to a VP candidate that's trying to defend her running mate and when asked twice (by her hand picked interviewer...again) to give examples couldn't, and gave the pathetic...

    There's a second part to the interview just below the main video clip. Note her meandering, incoherent, and superficial responses on economic matters.

    Better cancel those debates, toute de suite.

    That's French, by the way, Mrs. Palin.

    All joking aside, it's a bit disturbing. She was impressive at the convention but really does seem like nothing more than a hockey mom plucked from middle America and thrust into the political limelight.

    Perhaps these interviews are misleading and she'll hit her stride yet.

    It doesn't bother you that Biden thinks FDR was President during the stock market crash of 1929?

    What you have to be careful of is lowering expectations so far that if she just strings two or three words together in an answer at the debates, she'll be "surprisingly good".

    It worked for the Bush campaign. They set expectations really well.

    For the life of me I can't figure out why McCain would want to shield her from the press... :D Just put a helmet on her Big John... maybe some elbow pads and training wheels, too.

    Has anybody done a politcal cartoon on the Republican Campaign caravan?: McCain's "Double-talk Express" Supercruiser followed (distantly) by the Palin shortbus.

    Well that's two very good words to describe that.

    That it did. I would actually like to see her do well and loose the election on the basis of a discredited ideology. The Gibson interview was okay though something of a letdown after her "electrifying" performance (it appears that's all it was) at the convention. This one was positively dreadful. She comes across as a real neophyte who is hopelessly ill-informed and out of her element.

    Like you said, though, that may appeal to a certain segment of the electorate which despises anything that hints of intelligence, knowledge, and worldliness.

    I'm pretty sure he screwed up like the wheelchair thing.

    Palin on the other hand can't answer questions from her hand picked interviewer.

    Don't act like McCain is the end all beat all on this issue and then can't even give an example after being asked twice.

    Looking like the deer in the headlights...is only going to be overlooked so many times.

    I like Palin alot but she was horrible in this interview, she looked very unprepared and Katie ate her up. Hopefully she'll be better in the coming interviews she'll do in the future and in the debates.

    Well I never say never, but she's got a LONG way to go.

    Not that I'm unhappy about that. :D

    And you're right it is disturbing.
