Palin Has Big Plans For Her New Super-Vice-Presidency. But What Are They?
In yesterday's first, last and only 2008 Campaign Vice Presidential Debate (after she promised never to answer media questions again), sticking to the Bush-Cheney policy of shredding the Constitution and destroying the balance of powers it provides, wing-nut Sarah Palin just declared that she will go beyond even Dick Cheney in grabbing power and defying the law of the land. She also refused to commit to carrying out McCain's platform when she takes over his office upon his death, which may be imminent. She has her own agenda.
The power-mad newby, who yesterday re-demonstrated her cluelessness on dozens of vital issues, has either been promised an unprecedented role in the McCain Administration; or else she just decided yesterday, in mid-debate, to announce a coup all on her own. In response to the debate moderator's question on how his or her administration would differ from the next President's should he be unable to finish his term, Biden said he would carry out every one of Obama's policies word for word. Palin said her opinions frequently differed from McCain's, and that was okey-dokey, by golly. [01:05+ CSPAN]
"As for disagreeing with John McCain and how our administration would work: What do you expect? A team of mavericks; of course we're not going to agree 100% on everything and as we discuss ANWR there, at least we can agree to disagree on that one there [winks], and I'm gonna keep pushing him on ANWR though. I have so appreciated that he has never asked me to check my opinions at the door."
Palin then went on to expand her Constitutional powers without authorization. In response to a question on the role of the Vice-President, Palin declared [01:11+ CSPAN]:
"Of course, we know what a Vice-President does, and that's not only preside over the Senate, we'll take that position very seriously also, I'm thankful that the Constitution would allow a bit more authority given to the Vice-President also if that Vice-President so chose to exert it in working with the Senate and making sure that we are supportive of the President's policies and making sure too that our President understands what our strengths are. John McCain and I have had good conversations about where I would lead with his agenda."
"Governor [Palin], you mentioned a moment ago that the Constitution might give the Vice President more power than it has in the past. Do you believe, as Vice-President Cheney does, that the Executive Branch does not hold complete sway over the office of the Vice-Presidency, that is, it is also a member of the Legislative Branch?"
"Well, Our Founding Fathers were very wise there in allowing through the Constitution much flexibility there in the office of the Vice Presidency and we will do what is best for the American people in tapping into that position and ushering in an agenda that is supportive and cooperative with the President's agenda in that position. Um. Yeah. So. I do agree with him [Cheney] that we have a lot of flexibility in there and we'll do what we have to do to administer very appropriately the plans that are needed for this nation and it is my executive experience that is partly to be attributed to my pick as VP with, with, uh, McCain not only as a Governor but earlier on as a mayor as an oil and gas regulator as a business owner it is those years of experience on an executive level that will be put to good use in the White House also."

Woman with an agenda never before seen in this country? Overweaningly ambitious, grossly underqualified, issues-ignorant, faith-driven self-annointed messenger from God? A female Dubya with a bit of Cheney thrown in? You be the judge, in 33 days.
"Palin's Running... for President"
' In a segment aired Thursday night -- a few hours before Palin would debate Democrat Joe Biden -- Couric asked the Republican contender to name the vice president she admired most. Palin's response? "My goodness, I think those who have gone on to the presidency," said the governor, without blinking. Palin expressed particular regard for former President George H.W. Bush. Why? Because of Bush's "having kind of learned the ropes in his position as vice president and then moving on up." '
