Another curious thing there was allot of space between the 2 of them in the Obama interview.
The chairs were really really close together for the Palin interview.... Hmmmm to try to intimidate her maybe.

Right, because she's a woman and he's sexist. Spare me that balony. I heard on a radio show someone who studies body language and basically said that she was a big flop, who was lying and not believing what she said. She also said she was extremely uncomfortable and unsure of herself. Can't quote specifically, but it would be interesting to get some true "experts" opinion on the interview.

Nah, I don't care what experts think at all.

I want to see how voters respond, that is the real key. It could go either way. They could see Palin as diminished and unsure, lowering their support for the Republicans. On the other hand, they may see this as a continuation of demeaning TV coverage/treatment of female candidates, similar to their clear backhanded treatment of Clinton in comparison to Obama.

How will it play? I have no idea, but I wouldn't dismiss a backlash.

Notice the demeanor of Gibson. How respectful and how much deference he shows The One.

Must listen: At about 5:28. Obama basically says the same thing about a Israel's right to strike Iran that Palin did.

This is golden!
Since he said it before she was even an option for VP, she said what Obama was saying.....kinda like Mccain and that whole "Change" thing. I wonder if she supports Obama's stance on Windfall Profits being that she helped create that in Alaska?

Praytell tell me what is sexist about this or where I addressed she is a woman and he is a man?
So you cannot intimidate a man by sitting almost right on top of him? Sorry yes you can..
