Palin On O'Reilly

The Atlantic Wire's Benjamin Carlson picked out some transcript tidbits of Sarah Palin's somehow-overlooked interview with Bill O'Reilly a couple days ago, which may have gotten lost in the Christmas lights. Here's a taste: Palin's response when O'Reilly asks whether she's qualified to be president.

PALIN:  I believe that I am because I have common sense.  And I have,  I believe, the values that are reflective of so many other American values.  And I believe that what Americans are seeking is not the elitism, the kind of a spinelessness that perhaps is made up for that with some kind of elite Ivy League education and a fact resume that's based on anything but hard work and private sector, free enterprise principles.  Americans could be seeking something like that in positive change in their leadership.  I'm not saying that has to be me.
