Noam asks Palin's former campaign manager:

Do you think she would have resigned if some major scandal were about to break? Would that be her likely response to something like that?

She's too stubborn to allow that. She would have just said, 'Bring it on.'


I agree - unless the scandal is so destructive she had no choice but to take cover. But for that theory to work, the shoe should drop soon. And so far, it hasn't. Is someone negotiating the price? Or is this just total loopiness again - and she'll pull a Dan White and insist she wants the job back in a few days? I have no idea, because she can do or say anything at any moment. Wouldn't that be just peachy in a president?
