Sorry. I’m a Palin enthusiast, but I didn’t see the dissing others seem to see in this clip. I wouldn’t characterize his comments as an endorsement, but come on! It’s 2009, the next presidential election is almost three years away. No GOP player is likely to be committing him or herself this early to back Palin or any other candidate. I think Cantor observed Reagan’s command: don’t diss other Republicans. I much prefer his take to some of the “damning with faint praise” comments I’ve heard from the Huckster and Romney.
I disagree with your assessment of the interview.
Not only am I passionate about Palin being the presidential candidate. In my perfect world, Romney, Cantor, and Pawlenty will NOT be the VP candidates either.
The only person at the moment that I consider ideal as a VP candidate for Palin is Bobby Jindal or someone like Michelle Bachmann (that would not be realisitc) honestly just someone else other than the 3 above...
