... that there WAS lots of backstabbing an infighting going on in the McCain campaign between the Palin people and the McCain staffers. Sounds like it was pretty nasty indeed. The FOX admits he knew about it but was sworn to secrecy until after the election.

Not a real surprise.

Sworn secrecy? There have been reports of that going on for the last two weeks. It has been reported by several news stations. This isnt new news.

I'm anxious to hear details. I want to know what McCain really thinks about Palin on his ticket.

Those were leaks and rumors.
This is an official admission with details.

Well CNN did a interview with Palin. I guess she was wondering around the lobby of the hotel this morning. I 'm sure she is finding out that when you loose your not as popular as you were the day before McCain I guess went to his cabin and she is still hanging out. Anyway she was asked the question about in fighting and she said it wasn't true and she isn't a diva.

McCain and Palin looked very tense standing next to each other last night. And really, if he'd picked Romney or a moderate Republican woman senator as his running mate the race would have been much, much closer and he might have even won.

Yeah, and Dana Bash/CNN was saying there definitely was in-fighting and she said it may come out depending upon if the people decide to go public with it.

NYTimes magazine did a piece on this two weeks ago. Some of us aren't surprised.

FYI, this may come as a surprise, but on November 5 there's no reason to attack your defeated political opponents anymore.

Keep it up! With your help we can not elect John McCain to the presidency again tomorrow!

I saw that. It was Carl what's his name reporting even mentioned that they had fired an aide for giving out behind the scenes information and Palin had said aide rehired because it wouldn't have looked good.
