Journalists, bloggers, pundits, commentators, and political strategists are at a loss over what Sarah Palin will be doing in the very near future. I have no doubt that she will not be running for president. I’ll spare my readers a lengthy expose of why I believe this. Let me say just say this: her recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Conan O’ Brien should provide us with a clear idea of Palin’s actual ambition: television.
Yes, I believe she’s angling for her own show. No, not a late night gig, but something Oprah-esque. I have no concrete proof, but I definitely think it’s in the cards. She hasn’t been doing any hard-hitting policy interviews, and probably won’t do any. She’s just going to continue going on shows where she can showcase her humor, and maybe even take a few jabs at her rivals. There is nothing wrong with this route of course. It’s just not exactly the way you get elected president.
