Dang, even Sarah Palin’s mother-in-law, Faye Palin, has doubts about her being a vice president. She said that she enjoys hearing Barack Obama speak and still has not decided which way she will vote. I guess she just made some her son mad. “We don’t agree on everything. But I respect her passion,” she said. “Being pro-life is who Sarah is.”
Faye Palin said the entire family was shocked by the news on Friday. “I’m not sure what she brings to the ticket other than she’s a woman and a conservative. Well, she’s a better speaker than McCain,” Faye Palin said with a laugh. “People will say she hasn’t been on the national scene long enough. But I believe she’s a quick study.”
She said people doubted Sarah Palin when she ran for City Council, but that her daughter-in-law had a “singular focus.” “She was out there with [then-young son] Track, pulling him around from house to house in a wagon,” she said.
Sarah Palin is well known as a former high school basketball star, cross-country runner, beauty queen, hockey mom, city council member and Wasilla’s mayor from 1996 to 2007. I guess, anyone from who was mayor of a town with 6,715 people or less, a former beauty queen, eats moose burgers, into hiking to work while supposedly pregnant, under legislative investigation, there’s hope for you to become a vice president.
