Nov. 6: The Nations Chris Hayes talks about recent allegations by some GOP insiders about the rift between the McCain camp and the Palin camp. Keith is calling them the Republicannibals.
As this war heats up, Palin who has not been home even a full day, is getting requests from Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King and others, that want to do post-election interviews.
Palin had been expected at her office in Anchorage but later notified her staff that she wouldn’t be showing up after all. She stayed at her home in Wasilla, located 40 miles to the north, but was expected in her office on Friday, spokesman Bill McAllister said.
“The intensity of all the interest is amazing. Everyone wants to talk to her,” he said.
“I think she’s been working from home,” McAllister said. “Maybe she just liked the idea of spending a whole day at home.”
Palin returned to Alaska late Wednesday night, her final flight in the McCain-Palin campaign plane. Dozens of supporters greeted her with chants of “2012! 2012!” as she walked off the airplane, encouragement for her to run for president in four years.
Asked by reporters if she might run, Palin said: “We’ll see what happens then.”
We may be seeing more of Sarah Palin in the future, if she decides to honor part of the requests that have come in. In a way, I hope she does the Oprah Winfrey show or Barbara Walters. The reason, I don’t think either one will cut her any slack – not like Fox News did. It would actually be a real interview without Sarah Palin calling the shots.
