The liberal media is finally realizing Sarah Palin is a serious candidate and a major political force. We would normally expect ridicule from the LA Times, as they were one of the main collaborators in selling America the deception ‘Obama smart - Palin dumb’ but no longer. It naturally helps when Obama continues to show America he is completely incompetent as Sarah Palin keeps surprising (and disappointing) the Left that she is very very capable.
What a match-up! America's new most-admired women -- Sarah Palin & Hillary Clinton:
At the end of the 21st century's first decade, Americans have decided on the women they admire the most -- and their picks might surprise some. (Although probably not if they're looking at these photos. LA Times had side-by-side picture of Hillary and Sarah. The photo of Hillary was not bad but next to Sarah Palin it was.)
One is a woman who once lived in the White House -- Hillary Clinton. And the other is a woman suspected of harboring ambitions of living there someday -- Sarah Palin.
A Democrat and a Republican. A former senator and a former governor. Two polarizing politicians, both moms, both best-selling authors, who lost their own bids for one of the nation's top elected offices last year.
Are American voters dropping a hint here?
According to a new survey just released by USA Today and the Gallup Poll, the 62-year-old Clinton barely beat out the 45-year-old Palin as the most admired female -- 16% to 15% in a poll of 1,025 adult Americans. However, since the poll has a margin of error of +/- 4 points, it's statistically a P-C draw.
The survey was open-ended, meaning men and women respondents had to provide the names by themselves.
Not that public admiration necessarily translates to votes. But the results have to set off any political spectator's eager imagination about a future presidential ballot match-up between the pair, who are politically polar opposites, both outspoken, both often under-estimated and both beloved by their respective bases.
