Opening Arguments

Dynamic duo

If you haven't had enough of Sarah Palin, she's got a trip to Indiana scheduled, for a Right to Life dinner in Evansville on April 16 and a breakfast with a Down syndrome support group the following day. The travel will be paid for by SarahPAC, her political action committee, the formation of which has added to speculation about her plans to seek higher office. Not so, she says:

Palin said she created the PAC in order to pay for travel to events that could be considered political.

Stapleton said the governor does plan to stump for candidates around the country who share her values.

Oh, let's start a rumor anyway -- Daniels and Plain in 12. Or Palin and Daniels, the order of the lineup doesn't matter. The Blade and The Babe. Or Mitch and . . . but no need to give Democrats ideas.

Leo...heh heh hehhh...Mitch & the ......you're cheeky today aren't you?

In r/e Mitch, if you read the papers & blogs around these parts you'd think was an absolut tool, but nationally he's pretty roundly admired. For all our problems, we stack up pretty decently out of the other 49 states...

I always thought Mitch came from Washington to Indiana in order to build his presidential (or at least, 'higher-office') resume, and frankly he has been successful here in that he did exactly what he said he would do.

In other words, he promised in the campaign to improve the state economy, and he promised that he would have to do unpopular things to get the job done. He did, and he did.

We can't complain when we got exactly what we voted for, and that's why he was re-elected, I think. His campaign told the truth in large part. It was somewhat painful, but like a healthy exercise regimen, it was a good pain.

As for Palin, she and Obama both exhibit the essential requirements for outstanding leadership: not experience, but the innate ability to rally, inspire, and make right decisions for, the people they represent. Leaders, like migrating corporate CEOs, don't need expertise nearly as much as they need the talent to make wise, right and correct choices -- decisions in the best interest of the entity being managed. Sarah Palin was qualified all along, as was Obama if you can stomach liberal ideology.

A Palin/Daniels (or Vice a versa) ticket sounds good to me!
