Sarah Palin Info Blog: Bill Kristol, who was instrumental in bringing national attention to Governor Palin after meeting her during an Alaskan cruise in 2007, spoke about her on ABC’s “The Week” in response to a viewer’s question. I think Kristol’s response was rather condescending, and he seems to have little understanding of why Governor Palin resigned her position as governor. (He called it a shrewd gamble in 2009.) Both Stacy Drake and John Fund have written excellent articles on that topic:

Why Palin Quit

During an exclusive to web interview with “This Week,” Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol said Sarah Palin — after having hastily stepped down as Alaska’s governor in 2009 – might be able to rehabilitate her political career by winning a Senate race in her home state next year.
“I think the way Palin would possibly resurrect herself, if that’s the right word, or rehabilitate herself I guess a better way of putting it, [is] run for Senate in Alaska in 2014,” Kristol said.
“I’m not urging that, I’m just saying if I were her adviser I would say ‘take on the incumbent, you have to win a primary, then you have to beat an incumbent Democrat. It’s not easy.’ But if she did that, suddenly if she can imagine that, you know, ‘Sarah Palin, freshman senator, January 15, in Washington having beaten an incumbent,’ that would be pretty interesting,” he said.
“That I think is something she has to recover from in terms of being a serious leader in the party. She still has a lot of loyalty, she can
still shape the debate, she has a great political touch,” he said.

About Ask Marion
I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!!

"The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place".
At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it.
After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare.
But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds,
as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country.
And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
