Curious if anyone watched Ms. Palin's 5 best friends being interviewed this morning on GMA? I thought it was very revealing that only one friend said she'd vote for her. The others all himmed and hawed when asked if she was ready to lead. Not one said "yes". One said she didn't want to reveal who she'd vote for, and the others said they haven't made up their minds (waiting for the debates). I think this says an awful lot.

I doubt if these were friends. Most likely they grabbed some of those republicans that Palin blew the whistle on to make it seem they were "friends".

They were/are close friends. Being friends doesn't mean that you are on the same political page, though. They expressed respect for her, but said they didn't agree with all her political positions. I don't think it's anything negative about Palin that she maintains close relationships with people who don't always agree with her politically, but still value her friendship.

This speaks volumes... They don't trust her and they know she's not qualified to be VP.

Her friends didn't say either of these things. They said they didn't always agree with her political positions. Do all of your friends agree with every political position you take? I think it's great that she has friends who have different views, who can share their opinions with her in a mutually respectful way and maybe give her more balance in her stands.

Right, Anne Killarney who's been her adversary since the old days claiming to be only a "real person". Yet she's even shown up on Wiki and transcripts from several Alaska public hearings talking adversarial positions.

Because Ms Killarney does not agree with your view of Palin, that makes her not a real person?

Well, i would understand that her friends might have differing political views but the question asked was "is she ready to lead?". I know that if I was friends with say ,for example, Mitt Romney, whether or not I agreed with his political views - I would still say "yes, he's ready to lead his party". I wouldn't necessarily vote for him but I would still think he's ready to lead. None of her friends said she's ready to lead and all avoided answering the question.
