Bill Kristol thinks a freshman Senator Palin in 2015 would be “pretty interesting”

Bill Kristol, who was instumental 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 Governor Palin Resigned

Why Palin Quit

Benjamin Bell at ABC News writes:

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.

    Ah, the ultimate GOP WashDC insider doling out advice, as if he were King of the Hill! Palin will follow her OWN good advice and keen political instincts whether or not she runs for office again. Meantime, I’m looking forward to the level of interest & depth of her following when/if she makes that book tour this fall – that’ll be a REAL bell-weather as to her current viability. The (large) crowds I think she can still draw might just shock everyone!

    Sarah Palin should run for office in Alaska. She will win easily. Fast Forward: Can you imagine anything more exciting than Sarah vs Hillary in 2016. That is the day we take back our country.

    WHY OT FOR PRESIDENT?

  6. Hey … we don’t need a Bill Kristol to tell us that. The guy is a Washington insider. He has NO IDEA about what PEOPLE are thinking … or feeling. And we all know what Washington needs is Gov. Palin in the Senate, just to thumb her nose at Harry Reid.
