In their new book, “Game Change,” journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann report remarks made by Reid in an interview about Barack Obama during the presidential campaign.


Seeking answers in ‘Going Rogue’

By Shari Jo Sorchych | January 20, 2010

Shari JoI was shocked when McCain and Palin’s pre-election lead in the polls dissolved resulting in the loss of the election. I was hoping Sarah Palin’s book (ghost written by Lynn Vincent) would shed some light on why McCain and Palin lost when it seemed they had the election won in October and why Palin resigned as Governor of Alaska.

During the campaign Sarah Palin was under strict orders about an incredible number of things that once brought to light appear to explain at least in part why the Republicans lost. Admittedly, as Winston Churchill said, “If you’re not a liberal when you’re twenty you have no heart and if you’re not a conservative when you’re 40 you have no brain” and because the 20-somethings and 30-somethings are more closely networked and much easier to communicate with than those of us who have supposedly progressed past the heart stage and on into the brain stage, which enabled a dynamic and vigorous Democratic campaign.
