Of course Sarah Palin could defeat President Obama in a presidential election says John McCain, but she may decide not to.
How convenient is that?
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has no doubt that his former running mate Sarah Palin can defeat President Barack Obama in 2012 if she decides to run.
"Can she win the Republican nomination and can she beat Barack Obama?" Fox News' Chris Wallace asked McCain Sunday.
"Of course she can -- she can," McCain insisted. "Now whether she will or not, whether she'll even run or not, I don't know."
"A lot of things happen in campaigns, Chris. I was written off a couple of times and was able to come back. It will be a roller coaster ride for all of them before we finally arrive at our nominee. But she certainly is a major factor. And I believe that she can be very competitive," he added.
John McCain was able to come back and lose thanks, in part, to Sarah Palin.
Let us not forget that President Obama defeated John McCain in electoral votes by 320 to 141. I have no doubt that John McCain would have lost even if he had chosen someone else as a running mate, but it wouldn't have been as glaring of a loss.
Mister McGoo should feel free to keep going though! You're doing great!
